Overview:

In order to create inter-professional practice capabilities among young graduates, inter-professional education is considered as the need of the day. Thus, to achieve this objective NUR International University is offering BS in Applied Psychology with minor in Speech and Language Pathology. The combination of psychology and speech and language pathology will give our students competitive edge over other psychology graduates, since knowledge of Psychology and Speech and language pathology is necessary for treating many psychological and neurological conditions.

 

Why this field of study?

A well-selected minor cannot only give one a potential edge but can also make the difference between success and failure. Psychology and Speech and Language Pathology are natural allies since both psychologist and speech and language pathologist work side by side in treating children with Mental retardation, Autism and for other psychological ailments.  Majority of developmental pathologies and neurological conditions that clinical psychologists treat have accompanying language and communication difficulties for which knowledge of speech and language pathology is an added advantage.

 

Job Opportunities:

This field of study opens up two tracks carrier opportunities for the graduates. They can opt either for any specialized domain of Applied Psychology (Clinical/Counseling/Organizational) or the field of Speech and Language Pathology. The integration of the two academic disciplines reinforces and enhances the influence of the major area on the minor and vice versa. In this way, students can enhance their clinical and research skills, by pooling in resources from the knowledge base of both the disciplines of Psychology and Speech and language Pathology. The labor market offers many job opportunities for a graduate with this academic combination.
