Psychology Careers in Sri Lanka
A recent study conducted on Psychology education in Sri Lanka revealed that there are large number of opportunities available for Psychology graduates in the fields of; Clinical, Corporate consultancy, Human resource development and management, Sports, Social services, Family consultancy, Educational counseling, Social research and other governmental and non-governmental service organizations. The same research revealed the plight of our Psychology education system by identifying the handful number of degree qualified psychologists who are employed in these areas.
Missouri University of Science and Technology – Degree Psychology
After careful deliberation of the impact of these missed opportunities for Sri Lankan students, parents and working professionals, Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), USA, commenced the degree programs over 5 years ago. Limited numbers of scholarships are offered in collaboration with Missouri S&T, as a gesture of commitment to human resource development in Sri Lanka. Students can obtain either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BS) degree with an emphasis on areas such as Counseling psychology, Family psychology, Adolescent psychology, Child psychology, Industrial/Organisational psychology, Behavioral psychology, Experimental psychology and Clinical Psychology. These degrees are awarded by the Missouri S&T, USA, a top 5 ranked specialized university in Science and Technology in the US.
High Demand for Psychology Graduates
Missouri S&T Psychology degree has produced many graduates in the last few years. It’s indeed heartening to see that all of the graduates are successful in their chosen areas. While some have opted for post-graduate level education (Masters and Doctoral level) studies in reputed local and overseas universities, the others have entered top level positions in NGOs, private sector firms, and other service organisations. The degree program in Sri Lanka has achieved the same level or career success observed in the US, where 90% of the graduates have a job within 3 months. In the recently concluded Missouri S&T graduation 5 students achieved Missouri S&T – 4.0 GPA gold medal awards, which are given to the most outstanding students of the university.
Enroll after O/Levels and A/Levels
O/Level qualified students now have the unique opportunity to complete their entire bachelor’s degree within just four years, while A/Level qualified students are able to complete the degree in just three years. The flexibility of the program allows students to enroll with pending results in their examinations. Missouri S&T psychology students benefit immensely from the American education system which is based on all round education of a student, concentrating on high academic standards, continuous assessments, field work, industry exposure and internships.
