||We might be aware of the scale of development of any society is the development and spread of education in general and college education in particular.
We should not focus on the expansion of college education from the quantitative side (i.e. the number of universities, faculties, colleges, etc.) and to ignore the qualitative side. Thus it is foundation on which relies the cognitive ability and mental leadership in many fields of life. Also what the knowledge, ideas, values, and behaviors hat we plant today in the students are collective in the future. However value is a difference between and educational system that provides the graduate organized scientific thinking skills, and another another system that produces a graduate stagnation in his thinking who can't see ahead of his feet, who counts on instructions and lacks in creativity (Mihyi El Dine Abdul Halin, 2003).
Universities in the Republic of Yemen, even though young, yet all the hopes are relying on them for our country's development. The present study compared the educational plans for Baccalaureats level in Psychology in Yemeni public universities where 4 divisions in 4 universities provide these degrees Sanaa University, Adan University, Al Hadida University, Zamar University.
The study examined the plans in 3 features the number of hours required for graduation, the number of prerequisites, and the Islamic and cultural prerequisites. The study came out that there are 3 divisions that are close to each other in the number of hours and the number of prerequisites (University of Sanaa division, University of Zamar division and Al Hadida University division), whereas the 4th division (University of Adan) has significantly more hours required for graduation, and more prerequisites.
Islamic and educational prerequisites were close enough and this reflects the public universities' requirements.
After discussing these data the researcher presents a number of suggestions and recommendations that could serve the educational process for these divisions in order to serve better the Yemeni Society.
