PAFOS

Welcome to Neapolis University Choosing a programme of study is one of the most significant decisions that one makes and I hope that the information provided here will provide prospective students with a good idea of the programmes we offer and the professional opportunities that our graduates will enjoy. Setting up a University is a momentous task, which involves not only the considerable practical aspects of the physical creation of the University but also the more difficult task of creating a mission and philosophy for the new institution. My colleagues and I are determined to create an institution that provides high quality education, which creates and disseminates knowledge through our research, and plays a significant role in the economic and cultural life of the region. Our task is facilitated by the state-of-the-art campus, the natural and cultural surroundings of Pafos, the prevalent use of the latest technology and the quality of our staff. We hope that Neapolis University of Pafos will become an excellent place for students to learn, explore new ideas, and acquire the knowledge and skills they need to achieve their personal and professional goals. We look forward to you visiting the University.

Economics

Bachelor of Science Programme

Nature of the Programme

Economics is the study of how individuals, businesses, and governments decide the allocation of limited resources to achieve their objectives and how these decisions affect society. Microeconomics studies how consumers and businesses make decisions about work and leisure, consumption and saving, production and pricing. Macroeconomics studies the determination of national income in a country, how it is distributed, how it fluctuates, and the phenomena of inflation and unemployment. The study of economics at NUP equips students with the knowledge and tools of economic theory to understand the functioning of markets, of firms, and of financial organizations and to analyse and predict the costs, benefits and consequences of economic decisions; it helps students understand public debate about economic policy, including taxation and government expenditure, trade and globalization, health and welfare; it enables students to assess and explain macroeconomic conditions and to estimate the economic impact of specific changes in legislation or public policy.

Career Prospects

Students graduating from the programme will have a deep understanding of key economic concepts, theories, and analytical skills to critically interpret and manipulate economic data, and formulate and resolve problems; understand the global nature of economics; and appreciate how the international dimensions of economic policy, regulation and competition can be incorporated into specific policy or business situations. In addition to economics training, students graduating from the programme will have a good foundation in general business and humanities, as well as communication and research skills, and will be ready either for graduate studies in Economics, Business and Finance or for successful careers in industry, banking, the financial sector and the government.

Admission Candidates for the Programme in Economics should have finished their secondary education in an accredited school and have good knowledge of English. The University uses a number of English language tests to assess the level of competence. Applicants for the Programme in Economics will need to take an entry test before they are admitted to the Programme.

Master of Business Administration

Aims and Objectives

The MBA Programme provides a general management postgraduate and post-experience education for those aspiring to climb to or are already at senior management level in organisations and equip them to perform effectively in managerial positions. Accordingly, the aim is not to pursue an academic theoretical study, but rather to enable theory to inform practice. It is a living degree which utilises participants’ work experience, but at the same time instils new skills and provides new knowledge in a real-life business environment. Thus it will develop participants’ ability to make informed decisions about their practice, broaden and deepen understanding of business and management function and processes; foster skills of business research, analysis, synthesis and creativity so as to enhance decision-making and promote organisational well-being within the context of a continually changing and competitive business environment; encourage innovation and awareness of the role of information and technology in innovation; develop awareness of ethical, social, environmental and global issues affecting management decisions.

16

Programme Structure The programme is made up of six core modules, which are common to all students, a dissertation and four electives that allow the student to specialize in a chosen field of study. The programme also aims to develop interpersonal skills and to this end students are divided into groups for group projects. Group projects are one of the methods of assessment in most modules.

Master of Science in Banking, Investment and Finance Aims and Objectives

Programme Structure

The MSc in Banking, Investment and Finance aims to provide a sound understanding of the principles of financial theory and practice. The primary emphasis is to produce competent graduates who would be able to have a successful career in professional and academic posts related to finance disciplines, capital market activities or banking operations. The course itself combines both a strong academic and vocational element developed through case studies and individual research. The course provides a rigorous grounding in financial theory, financial analysis, economics and research methodologies and quantitative methods and allows students to develop a deeper knowledge of specific areas such as banking, investment management, corporate finance, and trading or risk management. The programme covers the syllabus of the CFA Institute and allows students to take the professional examinations whilst on the course.

The programme is made up of six core modules, a dissertation and five electives that allow the student to specialize in a chosen field of study. The core subjects equip students with the theoretical, technical and practical tools to tackle the more specialised material of the elective courses and the dissertation.

Course Duration

The one-year programme runs from September to August. The two-year programme runs over a period of four terms.

Mode Of Teaching

The two-year programme is delivered by combining face-toface tuition, with a variety of distance-learning sessions, video conferencing and web-based classes. Face-to-face tuition takes place at Neapolis on 9 extended weekends every year plus two one-week residential blocks each year. For the assigned weekends students will need to be available to attend classes as follows: Friday 5pm – 8pm Saturday 8am – 6pm Sunday 8am – 3pm The learning platform of the programme aims to make full use of each participant’s time by combining traditional lectures, case studies, group projects and business simulations with a variety of distance-learning sessions. Over the course of the two year program, participants will attend on-campus modules for a total of sixty days and take part in over 150 distance-learning sessions. The curriculum is rigorous and rich in theory to prepare students for further graduate study, but at the same time flexible and practical for students to relate what they are taught to real world counterparts.

Timetable

Each weekend of delivery combines two or three courses so that delivery of a single course is not concentrated in one weekend. In addition, exams are conducted progressively throughout the scheduled weekends, not at a separate time. Due to this intensive delivery mode students are able to gain a real sense of achievement and progress.

Το Τμήμα Ψυχολογίας του Πανεπιστημίου Νεαπόλεως προσφέρει προγράμματα τόσο σε προ-πτυχιακό όσο και σε μεταπτυχιακό επίπεδο. Απώτερος στόχος των προγραμμάτων είναι αφενός η παροχή στους σπουδαστές των κατά πεδίο παλαιότερων και σύγχρονων θεωρητικών ερμηνειών της ανθρώπινης συμπεριφοράς, και αφετέρου η απόκτηση των αναγκαίων δεξιοτήτων στο πεδίο των εφαρμογών, σε συνδυασμό με την κατάρτισή τους στις μεθόδους έρευνας. Δεδομένου ότι το προ-πτυχιακό πρόγραμμα απευθύνεται σε υποψήφιους διαφορετικής εθνοτικής προέλευσης, θα καταβληθεί ιδιαίτερη μέριμνα για την υπέρβαση των πολιτισμικών και εθνοτικών διαφορών που σχετίζονται με τη μαθησιακή διαδικασία. Τα μεταπτυχιακά προγράμματα προσφέρουν εναλλακτικές επιλογές και απευθύνονται στους/στις μέλλοντες/ουσες να ασκήσουν το επάγγελμα του ψυχολόγου και στους μαχόμενους εκπαιδευτικούς της πρωτοβάθμιας και δευτεροβάθμιας Εκπαίδευσης.

The department of Psychology at Neapolis University offers both bachelor and master programmes designed to produce graduates with theoretical and practical abilities, a solid grounding in research methods and an ability to function in an international climate. Unlike conservative parochial programmes, the innovative Neapolis University scheme will focus on a comparative international approach aiming to address and overcome cultural and ethnic differences in education, instruction and learning behaviours. The bachelor programme is geared towards the inexperienced undergraduate, while the master programs offer several optional streams with and without thesis and practicum to accommodate both practitioners and non-practitioners and to afford teachers and educational administrators a suitable education.

School of Humanities and Health Sciences

Bachelor of Science in Psychology

Nature of the Programme

The Bachelor of Science in Psychology programme focuses on the study of individuals and groups, including their behaviours, thought processes, and emotions. It seeks to provide students with an understanding of the cognitive and affective processes that underlie human experience and behaviour; the techniques by which behaviours are evaluated and modified; and the application of theoretical principles to solve behavioural problems. The programme covers the main specialisations in psychology, including education, family, sexuality; developmental disorders, group psychology and industrial and organizational psychology. Students will further be able to choose electives from a range of specialist areas, offered by other Departments of the University. As a teaching strategy, a combination of lectures, tutorials and use of audio – visual or visual material will be utilized. In all cases interaction with students and their active participation in the learning process will be fostered.

Career Prospects

The programme produces graduates with a broad knowledge base of theory and research in psychological science, the ability to apply psychological principles for the improvement of individual, group and organizational environments and the skills required to work as entry level psychologists in jobs such as counselling and rehabilitation counselling; community, social, youth and welfare work; disability services and family therapy. The bachelor in psychology further prepares graduates for work in nonpsychological settings which require insight and understanding of behaviour principles. These include: advertising, public relations, communication, health promotion, management consulting, market research and analysis.

Programme Structure

The undergraduate programme in Psychology consists of a general education element, a programme specific element and free electives. For the successful completion of their studies, undergraduate students need to satisfy the requirements of all elements.

General Education Subjects

The purpose of the General Education subjects is to ensure that every graduate of NeapolisUniversity acquires the essential foundations for living a productive life, being a citizen of the world, appreciating aesthetic values, and engaging in life-long learning in a continually changing world. For this reason, the general education requirements provide breadth across the humanities and arts, social studies and sciences; competence in communication, critical thinking, analytical skills and research capabilities, appropriate for a university-educated person. The General Education Curriculum includes courses in Sociology and Anthropology, Philosophy, Psychology, History and Politics, Language, Communication and Computer Skills and Research Methods.

Psychology Subjects

The psychology subjects of the undergraduate programme span the entire spectrum of the field covering subjects in Clinical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Counselling Psychology, Educational Psychology, Forensic Psychology, Organisational Psychology, Health Psychology, Neuropsychology, and Environmental Psychology. Particular emphasis is placed on laboratory and practical work while students undertake a year – long research project in the final year.

Free Electives Admission

Candidates for the Programme in Psychology should have finished their secondary education in an accredited school and have good knowledge of English. The University uses a number of English language tests to assess the level of competence. Applicants for the Programme will need to take an entry test before they are admitted on the Programme.

Maria Stylianou

Dr Maria Stylianou has a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from the University of Liverpool, U.K. After completing her Ph.D., she was awarded a research fellowship position at the University of Central Lancashire in the area of social and emotional intelligence in lonely children.

Στόχοι

Κριτήρια Εισδοχής

Μάστερ στην Εκπαιδευτική και Συμβουλευτική Ψυχολογία Κατεύθυνση ΙΙΙ: Εκπαιδευτική Ψυχολογία: Ψυχολογικές και Συμπεριφορικές Διαστάσεις της Εφηβείαs

Στόχοι

Η εφηβεία αποτελεί διακριτή περίοδο της ανθρώπινης ανάπτυξης η οποία, τόσο διαχρονικά όσο και (κατά κανόνα) διαπολιτισμικά εκλαμβάνεται ως μια εξελικτική φάση αμφισβητήσεων και δυσχερειών για τους ίδιους τους εφήβους, τους γονείς και τα πρόσωπα του ευρύτερου κοινωνικού τους περιβάλλοντος. Στον Δυτικό Πολιτισμό παρατεταμένη εφηβεία παρέχει στους νέους πολλαπλές ευκαιρίες να πειραματιστούν με ποικίλες μορφές ενήλικης συμπεριφοράς χωρίς να αναλαμβάνουν αντίστοιχες ευθύνες. Ταυτόχρονα, η ανάγκη των εφήβων για ανεξαρτησία δημιουργεί συγκρούσεις με τα πρόσωπα εξουσίας στο οικογενειακό και σχολικό πλαίσιο. Οι συγκρούσεις αυτές οδηγούν ορισμένες φορές στην υιοθέτηση παραβατικής συμπεριφοράς, η ερμηνεία και η αντιμετώπιση της οποίας προϋποθέτει τη θεμελιωμένη γνώση των βιο-κοινωνικών και ψυχολογικών διαστάσεων της εφηβείας. Η Κατεύθυνση της Εκπαιδευτικής Ψυχολογίας: Ψυχολογικές και Συμπεριφορικές Διαστάσεις της Εφηβείας του Μαστερ Εκπαιδευτικής και Συμβουλευτικής Ψυχολογίας απευθύνεται στους (εν ενεργεία ή εν δυνάμει) εκπαιδευτικούς των Γυμνασίων και των Λυκείων, οι οποίοι έρχονται σε καθημερινή επικοινωνία με τους εφήβους και αποσκοπεί στην κατάρτιση των διδασκόντων/ ουσών σε ευρύ φάσμα ψυχολογικών και συμπεριφορικών εκδηλώσεων οι οποίες χαρακτηρίζουν την εφηβεία. Ειδικότερα, στοχεύει στην εκ μέρους των μεταπτυχιακών φοιτητών/τριών κατανόηση: • • • • •

του Βιοκοινωνικού Πλαισίου ανάπτυξης κατά τα εφηβικά χρόνια, των σχετικών ερμηνευτικών προσεγγίσεων και των προεκτάσεών τους στο εκπαιδευτικό σύστημα. των ερμηνευτικών προσεγγίσεων της μάθησης και των εκπαιδευτικών τους εφαρμογών, όπως αυτές εξειδικεύονται κατά τη φάση της εφηβείας. της ψυχολογικής ανάπτυξης κατά πεδίο με έμφαση στις γνωστικές συναισθηματικές και κοινωνικές διαστάσεις της μέσα από το πρίσμα των επικρατέστερων ερμηνειών. των αποκλίσεων της ανάπτυξης κατά την εφηβεία, με έμφαση στις διαταραχές του συναισθηματικού φάσματος. των διεπιστημονικών προσεγγίσεων του σύνθετου φαινομένου της εμπλαισιωμένης παραβατικότητας, με εστίαση στις ψυχολογικές και κοινωνικές παραμέτρους που το ορίζουν.

Η φοίτηση στο Μεταπτυχιακό Πρόγραμμα στην Ψυχολογία της Εφηβείας διαρκεί τέσσερα ακαδημαϊκά εξάμηνα. Περαιτέρω παράταση ενός εξαμήνου χορηγείται μόνο για σοβαρούς λόγους. Το πρώτο εξάμηνο αποσκοπεί στην παροχή της αναγκαίας για την επιτυχή παρακολούθηση του υπόλοιπου προγράμματος ψυχολογικής γνώσης.

School of Architecture, Land and Environmental Sciences

Bachelor of Architecture

Nature of the Programme

The Bachelor of Architecture is a four-year degree that provides students with all the necessary knowledge and skills required to become modern architects. The programme is centred on a series of design studios for all four years, and it covers a wide spectrum of topics in history and theory of architecture, technology, and means of representation. The Bachelor of Architecture degree does not lead to professional accreditation and students need to complete the Diploma in Architecture degree for professional accreditation. The main aim of the Bachelor of Architecture programme is to provide students with a thorough foundation of the many aspects that make up the discipline of architecture and equip them with professional knowledge, critical skills and cognitive independence for successful careers. The programme provides students with design, communication, graphic, modelling and computational skills and hands on experience of architectural technologies to enable them to provide innovative solutions to architectural challenges. The programme places a high priority on the integration of theory and practice, and balances the aesthetic with the functional and the humanistic with the technological aspects of architecture.

Career Prospects

The Bachelor of Architecture by itself does not lead to professional recognition. To become a professional architect, students must complete this degree followed by the Diploma of Architecture (an additional year of full-time study or equivalent). Students who have successfully completed this course may proceed to the Diploma of Architecture as continuing students, provided they enrol in the next academic year after the award of the degree, or seek leave of absence for no longer than one academic year after the award.

Admission

Admission to the degree of Bachelor of Architecture is based on formal academic qualifications. Candidates should have a leaving qualification from a recognised secondary education establishment. Students should have a good background in mathematics, physics, visual arts, design, and history. All applicants submit a comprehensive portfolio containing the completed application form, academic record, extra-curricular experiences, employment record, and samples of design/art abilities. Students do need to submit a portfolio, but because, Architecture is a design-oriented course, most candidates will be asked to supply samples of their drawings by post.

32

Programme Structure

The Bachelor of Architecture is a four-year degree which consists of four main themes: Design, History and Theory of Architecture, Technology, and Professional Practice. In the first year of their study, students gain knowledge, skills and experience. They have the opportunity to develop their architectural creativity through design projects. The emphasis is on helping them to develop a way of thinking, working as an individual designer with an understanding of spatial experience. They learn to think in three dimensions and to scale by sketching, drawing and modeling their ideas both digitally and by hand. The objective of this unit is to develop the architectural thought of the students, that is to acquire ‘eyes that see’ space. The courses are organized around a combination of design studios, history and theory courses, and technical and media of representation studies. In year two, skills acquired in the first year are developed more fully and applied in a series of design projects of increasing complexity. The technology of building becomes an inherent part of each design. The design tasks require the resolution of more complex problems and on greater scale, and theoretical issues raise questions about the architectural expression of the public domain. The third semester (autumn) has as specific issue the public domain via the design of a small scale public building, while the fourth semester (spring) is focused on Urban design and Bioclimatic Architecture.

Bachelor of Architecture

In year three students identify what contemporary architecture means to them and establish their theoretical position through a variety of projects. During the fifth semester the main issue is restoration-rehabilitation, while the sixth semester focuses on Urban Planning and Landscape Design. In parallel with the studio work, further skills are developed through taught courses in History and Theory, Technical and Media Studies. Each of these makes a valuable contribution to the studio work but is examined separately. The fourth year of the programme offers students the opportunity to extend their design skills with a rigorous creative studio environment, as well as explore architecture as a response to the contemporary city. Students are expected to apply and combine all the knowledge acquired so far in topics like architectural design, technology of buildings, theory of architecture and human sciences. Students begin to be orientated to special fields of architecture as bioclimatic architecture, landscape and urbanism, conservation of historic buildings and sites, which will lead to their specialization by the selection of a specific topic in their diploma thesis and research paper.

Programme Learning Outcomes

By the end of their studies students will acquire: • • • • • • •

Master in Advanced Architectural Studies

Aims and Objectives

The Master of Advanced Architectural Studies is a post-professional programme mainly for qualified architects who wish to enhance their level of analytical knowledge and skills and get a deeper understanding of a special area. All students follow a course in advanced design together with an accompanying seminar and topics in architectural theory. The programme provides students with the opportunity to explore recent developments in architectural thinking and design technologies and enhances their ability to deliver high-quality design and analytical work in the area of their choice. In particular, the curriculum allows students to specialise in the following four areas:

Advanced Architectural Design The programme investigates innovative approaches to architectural design, exploring the relationships between space, buildings, culture, science and an avalanche of technical advances. The course covers methodologies, ideologies, design theory and practice, and interdisciplinary approaches. The aim of the programme is to critically examine the co-evolution of design along with the wider scientific, technological and economical processes shaping buildings, landscapes and cities. The programme aims at providing students the opportunity to investigate in-depth a series of design problems, integrating advanced technological and design issues together with conceptual, aesthetic and artistic concerns. Students will be introduced to working with information and data flow and will explore the concepts of parametric design. Students will also be encouraged to explore the new media on design, representation and fabrication.

Environmental Architecture The aim of this programme is to provide students with the philosophy/theory, history, and best practices underpinning innovations in sustainability/high performance/green buildings and help them understand and apply the principles of conceptual formulation, form, structure and materiality, construction details, and sustainable techniques governed by environmental design and management. The course examines also current theoretical and scientific issues pertaining to bioclimatic and sustainable architecture, and provides a review of advances in material sciences and construction techniques as they pertain to environmental design.

Landscape Urbanism The programme explores innovative approaches to design and intervention in the city, investigating the relationships between built form, space, culture, development processes and sustainability. The course covers methodologies, urban ideologies, design theory and practice, and urban features. The aim of the programme is to critically examine the co-evolution of design and development strategies and the wider social, economic and environmental processes shaping buildings, neighbourhoods, public spaces and cities. Within this context, the programme focuses on new material interventions (urban strategy, landscape ecology, tools of digital design, thoughts of political ecology) that operate within an urbanism conceived as a social, material, and ecological system, which is continually modulated by the spatial and temporal forces in which it is networked. It also examines the impact of urbanisation on the coastal zone in Cyprus.

42

Landscape Architecture This programme is addressed not only to architects but also graduates of related disciplines that want to specialize in Landscape Architecture. It focuses on the human environments and the basic elements they are composed of, and explores design theories and principles, as well as appropriate analysis and evaluation processes. Within this context, the programme provides a historic overview of the evolution of Landscape Architecture theory and practice and noteworthy examples of historic and contemporary work. The programme projects the significance of good landscapes into the human environment and the opposite, that is, the significance of human environments into the natural landscape, and emphasizes the importance of the principles of sustainability and the respect of the natural and human environment, as well as the ecology, in shaping the landscape design process in urban, suburban or natural environments.

Teaching and Learning Methodology Teaching and learning methods vary across modules but the core learning environment in the first and the second year of the programme are the two Advanced Design Studios supported by related seminars. All students need to take the Advances in Architecture Seminar where visiting Architects will present to students modern developments in the discipline of architecture. Students will need to take a non-core seminar in another of the special areas offered. The Graduate Thesis is an original piece of work which could be design or research-based.

Assessment

The design studio work will be evaluated both in terms of progress and in terms of the final design produced. The seminar modules will be assessed individually, through coursework, such as submission of reports and presentations, and/or formal written examination. The Thesis will be assessed on the basis of the submitted work.

Levels of Award

On successful completion of the Master, students may be awarded a distinction, merit or pass.

Master of Science in Real Estate

Aims and Objectives

The Master of Science programme in Real Estate will be the first dedicated postgraduate programme in real estate in Cyprus. The programme adopts a multi-disciplinary, integrated approach to the study of real estate and its curriculum is designed to significantly enhance the student’s knowledge regarding all aspects of the industry and how it functions covering a number of diverse but essential topics such as valuation, financing, investment, development, law and management. The course is based on academic rigour without sacrificing the applied nature and vocational character of a real estate programme. This balance is achieved by mixing the finance and management modules of the programme with applied modules in law, real estate development and management. The real estate development studio brings together all the aspects of the programme in a whole-term case study of a real-life development.

Career Prospects

The programme is appropriate for people seeking leading positions in real estate development and investment, property analysis and valuation, property and asset management, property development, property finance, property research, property sales and acquisitions, real estate agency (sales/leasing), tenant advisory services, mortgage banking and institutional lending, real estate brokerage and leasing, appraisal and investment consulting, or real estate positions within government agencies. It also provides valuable education to those seeking a broader base to careers in property development, urban planning and facilities management.

Programme Structure

To qualify for the Master in Real Estate program students will be required to complete a programme of study totalling 120 ECTS over 24 months. The programme employs a blended-delivery model that incorporates on-line, classroom and resident instruction. The programme operates in two 9-month periods (18 months of instruction with a summer break in between the first and second years). Courses are delivered during weekends once a month during the Autumn and the Winter Semesters. The course incorporates two strong components of applied nature. The first component is the practicum, where students are required to examine a particular real estate project mostly from market analysis and valuation perspective and deliver a professionally written report. This module will be completed during the first summer term and its main objective is to give students the opportunity to apply the knowledge, concepts, methodological approaches and analytical tools taught in various relevant courses during the first academic year of the programme and teach them how to produce a professional valuation report. The second component of the programme of strong applied nature is the Real Estate Development Practice studio, which brings together all the aspects of the programme in a whole-term case study of a real-life development where students will examine an actual real estate development project from start to end including, site planning and design, market analysis, feasibility study, construction scheduling and development. The completion of a dissertation is also required during the summer period following the fourth semester.

Course Duration

The two-year programme runs over a period of four terms with two summer terms used for the completion of the Practicum and the dissertation.
