Contents of the study programme

Psychology as a science is concerned with behaviour and experience as well as their causes and effects. Its task is to identify the conditions of the environment and in the organism on which behaviour and experience depend in their respective forms and expressions. At the same time, the task is to develop proposals and instructions on creating the best possible psychological conditions and participating in their implementation.

Psychology is an empirical science, which means that all statements and proposals for action must be empirically validated. Therefore, the programme puts a strong emphasis on the methodology of empirical/experimental as well as practical psychological work.

Furthermore, you will learn key tools required in professional practice and modern scientific studies. These include the mastery of psychological techniques in conversation, the ability to execute experimental work, systematic observation and scientific surveys, as well as computer skills and the presentation of scientific results using modern teaching techniques.
