The Associate Degree in Psychology is a two-year program that introduces students to the basic tenets of the field of psychology. It is not only beneficial for enhancing academic records or resume, but also a wonderful opportunity to expand the knowledge of psychology from an Islamic perspective.
“And cooperate in righteousness and piety, but do not cooperate in sin and aggression.” (Qur’an, 5:2)
“Whoever does righteousness, whether male or female, while he is a believer - We will surely cause him to live a good life, and We will surely give them their reward [in the Hereafter] according to the best of what they used to do.” (Qur’an, 16:97)
Being a therapist or counsellor is a very praiseworthy profession because the whole profession is about helping others which is stressed and promoted in Islamic teachings.Since this is a profession where a person influences thoughts and behaviour of others, it is crucial for the therapists to have an authentic knowledge and understanding of Islamic teachings, especially tawhid, which he will further pass on to the client in order to modify his way of thinking. And this is exactly what IOU’s Associate of Science in Psychology offers authentic Islamic knowledge and knowledge of psychology combined. This program can later be forwarded toward IOU’s degree in psychology.
