Psychology Department (PsyD)


We, the Psychology Department of DLSU-Dasmarinas, a community of professionals, are inspired by the Lasallian values of faith, zeal for service, and communion in mission.

We envision a community of learners, who are motivated by a clear sense of purpose, committed to enhance quality of life, and catalysts for wholistic transformation.


Our department is committed to teach, conduct research, and practice Psychology in the service of humanity to transform lives.

Program Offerings

  • The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology program ensures that students learn the various theoretical aspects of Psychology and that they are equipped with tools needed for a better understanding of human behavior. It also aims to help students develop a healthy personality that will motivate them to work as “people-helpers.”

  • The Bachelor of Science in Psychology offers an extensive physical science based-program as compared to the current offering of Bachelor of Arts. The science-based program is a more appropriate academic design for clinical purposes in the areas of psychology such as M.A. and PhD in Clinical Psychology, and also Psychiatry. Thus, the BS prepares students who have high intentions either to pursue clinical and/or medical based professions

  • Career Opportunities

    Industrial/Organizational Psychologists apply psychological principles and research methods to the work place in the interest of improving productivity and the quality of work life.

    Clinical Psychologists assess and treat mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders. These range from short-term crises, such as difficulties resulting from adolescent rebellion, to more severe, chronic conditions such as schizophrenia. Some clinical psychologists treat specific problems exclusively, such as phobias or clinical depression.

    School Psychologists work directly with public and private schools from elementary to postgraduate levels of education. They assess and counsel students, consult with parents and school staff, provide vocational and career plans, and conduct behavioral interventions when appropriate, especially in the field of Special Education, among others.
