As a psychologist you deal with human behaviour and development in many fields, including psychological treatment, education, work place, sports, environment, traffic, health, media, and more. In clinical professions, for example, you are concerned with the treatment of people with emotional or behavioural disorders or supporting patients with neurological deficits. Developmental issues are central to clinical work as well, since origins of maladaptive behaviour often lie in early childhood.

In our bachelor programme:

  • you learn about theories of the biological, cognitive, social and environmental factors influencing behaviour;
  • you obtain basic communicational and diagnostic skills necessary for work in practice;
  • you are trained to get an in-depth focus on the methodological and statistical knowledge and skills essential for scientific research;
  • you learn to reflect on scientific theory in psychology;
  • you learn to reflect on your own development as psychologist;
  • you have the possibility to focus on a domain of your own interest and that fits best with the track in your future Master programme.
