Welcome to the Department of Psychological Sciences.
I am pleased to welcome you to the Department of Psychological Sciences (DPS), one of the two main department of the College of Education. The Department makes significant contribution to Qatar's education reform plan “Education for a New Era”, through its undergraduate and graduate programs in Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Special Education ( Graduate Diplomas in ECE and Special Education, Master in Special Education, and Early Childhood track in BEed Primary Education Program).
The DPS faculty are highly qualified, diverse, and are actively engaged in research activities through the QNRF National Research Priorities Research Program (NPRP). As such, they collaborate closely with international scholars on a number of important research projects. The DPS faculty also take leadership roles in professional development programs and consultancy activities within and outside the university.
The DPS provides service to QU and the community at large through its Early Childhood Center which cares for young children under the supervision of a highly dedicated team of early childhood educators. The Early Childhood Center also serves as a clinical training setting for our students in early childhood education programs, and plays a key role in disseminating best practices in early years education in Qatar .
