Students are also provided with opportunities to design and conduct psychological research, from basic scientific discovery to application of theoretical concepts to business and health settings. Student research projects have resulted in research awards from the Hong Kong Psychological Society, international conference presentations, and publications in academic journals.


The psychology discipline at CityU is outward-looking and multidisciplinary. In order to develop new initiatives in both research and impact, the psychology team has strategically focused their efforts on engaging in multidisciplinary research, collaborating with experts and researchers across a wide spread of different fields, including business, education, engineering, linguistics, medicine, public policy, and social work. Psychology colleagues have also engaged in international collaborations as a means of developing their research, such as regular interactions with psychology departments world-wide through research collaborations, visit and exchange both ways, and organization of Asian-Pacific Conference on Applied Positive Psychology, as well as other events.
