In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

All praise be to Allah, and may Allah's Peace and Blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah, and upon his family and companions and whoever followed him.

The Department of Psychology at the UQU College of Education is the oldest department of psychology in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, starting its activities between 1383-1384 A.H.

The Department of Psychology contributes to carrying out its basic duties in teaching students at the College of Education and the UQU University at the bachelor's, educational preparation, master's, and doctoral levels.

The services provided by the department to the students of the university and community have increased, as a large number of holders of master's and doctorate degrees have graduated from the department under the supervision of Saudi professors and specialists with the participation of other elite Arab fellows. The department is proud that these graduates occupy many academic and leadership positions in various Saudi universities and educational institutions.

In conclusion, I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to Allah, Exalted and Glorified be He, and then to the administration of the university under the leadership of His Excellency Prof. Abdullah bin Omar Bafail, President of Umm Al-Qura University, and the Deanship of the College of Education, represented by its beloved dean, Dr. Ali bin Muslih Al-Matrafi, for providing all kinds of support to the Department of Psychology to enable it to achieve its mission.

May Allah grant you all success!

Head of the Department of Psychology

Dr. Salim bin Muhammad Al-Mufrigi
