Bachelors in Psychology: the Uncertainty of Goal-setting, Risks and Possible Ways to Overcome them

1002

Abstract

The paper analyzes the uncertainty of goal-setting in the preparation of bachelors in Psychology to social work; the structure of competences, the final examination criteria for graduates. We describe the risks in training programs in the selection of the content and teaching technologies: lack of the principles of academic and applied bachelor content distinction; risk of a “clip” format of teaching students due to the shortage of time for the acquisition of the academic disciplines content; the risk of "hidden defect" in the development of professionally important qualities in graduates. We outline the methodology to overcome these risks: the implementation of the principle of the unity of the "philosophy of practice" and the science of psychology; the standard of the psychologist work should be the basis of the content selection and didactic training of psychologists; the principle of integration of the human sciences is a functional element of the social system, free and sovereign personality, and individual organism.
