Psychology, Bachelor of Science*

Globalisation is making our society increasingly mobile, different worlds of thoughts and values are coming together and processes are becoming more complex. Psychologists deal with the experience and behaviour of people in their different circumstances and can use their specialist knowledge to explain and predict complex issues and decisively improve processes with their clients.

 

In our Bachelor's degree programme Psychology, you will learn from renowned professors from science and industry, who have expert knowledge in areas such as clinical psychology, occupational psychology or business psychology. In addition, you can actively shape your studies and your career path through individually selectable specialisations and an interdisciplinary choice of subjects. 

* Accreditation in preparation due to the new Bachelor reform.

The programme can be started in the winter or summer semester. In both cases, students have access to the same study content in the basic, methods and application courses. The courses are attended together with older (earlier enrolled) and younger (later enrolled) fellow students, so that the students can encourage and support each other.

The focus of our teaching is on your individual support in small learning groups and a friendly, familiar atmosphere. A variety of practical projects with top partners and a coached internship semester will prepare you perfectly for the job market.
