Master of Science

Contents of the 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 how to create the best possible psychological conditions and to participate in their implementation.

In order to achieve these goals, the master's programme teaches comprehensive knowledge in subjects of applied psychology (Work and Health Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology) as well as advanced knowledge in basic subjects. There is flexibility in how you combine your individual courses.

You will also learn important transferable skills for the professional practice in the various fields of psychology. These include the mastery of psychological conversation techniques, the ability to conduct experimental research, to observe systematically, to implement social science survey methods and to present scientific results using modern teaching techniques, as well as relevant computer skills.
