Bachelor of Science in Psychology in the Philippines

Posted on

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology (BS Psychology) is a four-year degree program in the Philippines that is concerned with the way humans think and behave.

By taking this course, you will learn how to conduct and interpret different tests such as those aiming at evaluating a person’s intelligence (IQ test), skills (aptitude tests), and personality (personality test); and how you can apply your findings in different settings such as the field of education, business, and public service.

It is mostly similar to Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with the exception of additional natural science electives that you can take in preparation for pursuing a career in medicine or research.

Some examples of courses that you may take while enrolled in this program include:

  • Pscyhological Statistics

  • Social Psychology
  • Psychological Assessment
  • Abnormal Psychology
  • Research in Psychology

  • Physiological Psychology
  • Sikolohiyang Pilipino
  • Group Dynamics
  • Psychology of Learning
  • Biology
  • Chemistry
  • Physics

Aside from taking the subjects above, you may also be required to go through an On-the-Job Training at hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and other similar healthcare facilities where you’ll have an opportunity to put what you learned in school to good use.


Graduates of BS Psychology can pursue any of the following jobs:

  • Clinical Psychologist
  • College Professor
