The Department of Psychology, founded in 1966, is concerned with the psychological foundations of human behavior. The undergraduate program, with an emphasis on basic course training in psychology, such as Experimental Psychology and Statistics, is intended for students who wish to pursue advanced study in psychology or in related disciplines. The graduate program, which currently offers only the MS degree, is mainly designed for both academic and applied objectives. Our program provides well-organized core courses for students who will continue by seeking a Ph.D. degree in psychology elsewhere. In the meantime, we also offer courses training and preparing students for community, industrial, and clinical services.


Our graduate core courses are basically organized into several areas in psychology, including Experimental and Cognitive Psychology, Social Psychology, Comparative Psychology, Psychometrics, Counseling Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology , and Industrial and Organizational Psychology. Each student is expected to select one of these areas as his or her major. Then the student will follow a training program to develop a thorough understanding of the theory, development, methodology, and the application of this particular sub-discipline as an independent researcher.

Department Vision

The focus of research and teaching in the Department of Psychology is to cultivate and enhance students’ abilities in logical thinking, practical application, and empathy. In addition, we incorporate the core goals of quality education, gender equality, good health and well-being from the United Nations’ “2030 Sustainable Development Goals” (SDGs) into our curriculum design, continually contributing to global sustainable development.
