Faculty of Health and Social Sciences

The Faculty of Health and Social Sciences at IUMW is a premier institute offering the most versatile courses around the world. Quintessentially, this faculty is devoted to establishing itself as one of the pinnacles of solid and profound humanitarian education. The field of health and social sciences is irrefutably one of the most important fields to the enhancement of mankind. It is a dynamic area of study that undulates according to the findings and revelations of groundbreaking research and meticulous meta-analysis. It is also an area of study that is unique in its ability to pave the way for altruistic outcomes. As the famed American Sociologist, Nicholas A. Christakis once said, “The social sciences offer equal promise for improving human welfare; our lives can be greatly improved through a deeper understanding of individual and collective behavior.”

One specific field in which IUMW’s Faculty of Health and Social Sciences is specialized in is the field of Psychology. Concerned with the scientific development of knowledge about human behavior and thought, intensive analysis training and critical skills are taught with the intent of producing graduates who are competent from every angle.

With a team of fine academicians, all programmes are carefully conducted to bring out the best among incumbent psychologists and future social service contributors. Our programmes integrate research and hands-on expertise to produce high performing professional practitioners ready to take up roles in contemporary health and social sciences practices. With international mobility, our students have access to some of the world’s best social sciences facilities and opportunities. With a wide range of applications from industry to commerce, education, health and social services, graduates will have a multitude of options in the global employment sector. At IUMW we guide students towards harnessing their capabilities to find the missing puzzle pieces in the jigsaw that is humanity.

"I find studying at IUMW to be an enjoyable experience. The best part is the experienced and helpful lecturers from University Malaya and University of Wales, who provided so much help and support. They really helped me a lot! The classes were smaller and that made it easier for students to get to know each other.”
