Contents of the Programme

Psychology as science is concerned with experience and behaviour, as well as with their causes and effects. Its task is to assess and explain conditions in the environment and the organism that determine experience and behaviour in their respective characteristics. At the same time psychology shall develop suggestions and instructions of how to create psychologically ideal conditions, and it should contribute to their implementation. 

Psychology is an empirical science, that is all of its results and claims have to be put under empirical tests. Therefore the study programme strongly emphasises methods of empirical/experimental as well as of practical-psychological work.

Furthermore, key qualifications for the work as a psychologist are acquired during the programme. This involves training in psychological consultation techniques, in experimental work and systematic observation, in the execution of surveys, in IT competences and in the presentation of scientific results using modern presentation techniques.
