Aims and Characteristics

Programme Aims

This is a Master’s level programme for graduates with a psychology major who are looking for systematic training in the latest advances in assessment and practice methods used in various professional psychology settings.


The programme aims to provide a well-balanced foundation in assessment, intervention, research and evaluation. Over 1 or 2 years, a solid identity as an applied psychologist with functional competencies in these areas will be established.


The teaching faculty members of the Department of Applied Social Sciences have a long history of being active in multi-year and territory-wide research and consultancy projects that reflect the policy priorities of Hong Kong and the Chinese mainland. This background has resulted in the development of a unique curriculum that includes direct and innovative instructional strategies, and in some cases first-hand exposure to the large-scale implementation of experimental programmes in education, health and social care.
