Applied psychology will be focusing on the use of different psychological methods and scientific principles to solve practical, real world problems pertaining to human behavior and experience. It is practical, realistic and forms the foundation to further specialization in more specific fields like sports, clinical, counselling, industrial, educational psychology.

Positive Psychology focuses on the following key elements: positive emotions, positive individual traits, positive relationships and positive institutions. Understanding positive emotions entails the study of contentment with the past, happiness in the present, and hope for the future.

This course lays the foundation for the theoretical and applied knowledge that gives learners an insight into the dynamics of the human mind and behaviour. The course covers foundational modules for learners to acquire a wide reaching background of both psychology and positive psychology that can be applied for use in daily work and play.

The course will be taught in a learning culture where learners, psychologists and practitioners can share and learn from each other. With this commitment and efficient educational space, our learners can be transformed to applied psych-opinionated leaders.
