From as early as 1985 and as part of the activities of the College of
Graduate Studies as it was known at that time, Naif Arab University for
Security Sciences has given the greatest attention to the study of
psychology in what relates to security. In 2014, the Department of
Psychology was established in the newly formed College of Social and
Administrative sciences. This was in response to the increased need for
this specialist subject to refine and develop the skills and knowledge
of Arab security personnel.
