The Department of Applied Psychology of Lingnan University was officially established on 1 January 2014 under the Faculty of Social Sciences.
Comprised of psychologists originally housed at the Department of Sociology and Social Policy, the new department is committed to providing quality teaching and conducting scholastic research on occupational health psychology, human-computer interactions, cross-cultural psychology and positive psychology. The Department offers fundamental and advanced courses in an array of specialised areas in psychology, covering social psychology, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, personality and individual differences, occupational safety and health, environmental psychology, stress management and positive psychology. Graduates are expected to have a solid understanding of the discipline of psychology that will enable them to pursue further study and research, and to deal with challenges on professional and personal fronts.
The Psychology Laboratory was also established together with the new department. Divided into two rooms (operator’s room and participants’ room) by a one-way mirror, the Laboratory is installed with audio-visual equipment for real-time recording and monitoring to support single- and multiple-participants experiments, as well as observation studies.
