Worum geht's im Studium


The one - year programme distinguishes itself by the fact that students are not only t aught about the functioning of psychological processes, but that they also learn to connect these processes to behavioural consequences, with the aim of understanding self - regulation and behavioural control.

This means that you will develop knowledge of ps ychology as a science, and that you will also learn to apply this knowledge to practical problems and to develop effective interventions.

The teaching programme is based on state - of - the art scientific research and maintains a strong emphasis on the acquis ition of academic and research skills. Completion of the MSc degree prepares students for subsequent academic degrees, including a PhD.

Training is provided in all relevant ski lls, including reviewing the relevant literature, applying theoretical knowledge to analyse practical problems, developing hypotheses and writing research proposals, designing and carrying out empirical studies, designing and e valuating the effectiveness o f interventions, conducting advanced statistical analyses, and presenting results and recommendations.
