Psychology is an experimental science belonging to the field of Health Sciences. It also has extensive connections with Social Sciences. These areas of knowledge define the skills, competences, abilities and aspirations of the future students of the Bachelor's Degree in Psychology.
From the point of view of Health Sciences, students who choose a degree in Psychology should have the ability to pay attention and have perception skills, capacity for analysis and synthesis, thoroughness and attention to details, visual and auditory memory, logical reasoning, numerical and spatial skills, gift for abstraction, willingness to research and scientific events, interest in new technologies and human development.
From the point of view of Social Sciences, students should be interested in the study of humans as individuals and their environment. It is advisable that students who choose our degree have a social sensitivity, ability to form social relations and interpersonal contacts, capacity to communicate, to reason and to understand, as well as flexibility and critical sense.
“My experience at UCAM as a student of Psychology is both rewarding and surprising. Although people were reluctant to accept the Bologna Process at first, for me it has been a complete success because of those students who attend lessons every day, since students actively participate in their learning under a continuous assessment.
Therefore, acquired skills are not only on “knowing how to do a good exam”, but also learning to work together, do our homework, be able to communicate in public and even step by step approach the professional practice.
The relationships with my classmates go beyond the classroom, many of them are now friends, good friends, people with whom you grow and learn every day. In short, I’m glad of my choice.”
