Discipline construction:

Aiming at the national, social and school’s major needs for the discipline construction of psychology, we have made preliminary achievements in improving the discipline organization framework and determining discipline orientation. We were awarded master's degree program in 2016 and professional master’s degree program in 2020. We passed the assessment of master's degree program and the State Council's disciplinary evaluation in 2020, and ranked 29th (top 30%) on the ranking issued by Shanghai Ranking Consultancy. At present we have established four research orientations: "psychology of disaster and emergency", "health psychology and counseling psychology", "developmental psychology and occupational psychological guidance", "psychometrics and big data mining".

Developmental Psychology and Psychological Coaching for Career Development

This research orientation focuses on the psychological characteristics and mental health education of young people, the localization of EAP model, and the sunshine mentality cultivation and potential promotion of different professional groups.
