Psychology

The MSc, or Master of Science, is an internationally recognized academic degree that indicates proficiency and knowledge of a given topic or field. Most MSc programs take about four years to finish, after which some join the workforce while others continue on in the classroom. 

Psychology is the study of human behavior and the human mind. As a science, it only began in the late nineteenth century with the groundbreaking studies of psychologists such as Sigmund Freud. Psychology has several sub-disciplines that explore emotional and cognitive conditions and states.

Nothing helps scholars grow like exposure to a diverse set of ideals and backgrounds and that’s just what any student will get in the Middle East. From ancient civilizations to modern day cultures, scholars have the opportunity to experience new things in this region.
