ACADEMIC HEAD OF PROGRAMDr. Mojgan Shadbash
“Psychology has been a very popular course of study for students in Sri Lanka. Student’s gain not only theoretical knowledge but develop their personality and ethical values as professionals. This is further reinforced whilst completing a supervised internship program. Now, with increased study options, the vacuum is being minimized but more professionals in psychology are essential especially those who possess a post-graduate qualification along with international learning experience.”
