Diverse career opportunities in business, health care and the educational sector

As an empirical science, psychology uses scientific methods to investigate general regularities in cognitive structures and behavioural processes. This allows for the explanation and prediction of human experience and behaviour. On this basis, suggestions can then be made for a change in behaviour in a wide variety of practical fields. Completion of the Bachelor’s programme entitles students to enrol in the Master’s programme in Psychology with a main focus on Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy (starts in the Winter Semester 2022/23) if they choose the respective area of specialisation. It also entitles to enrol in any general Master’s degree in psychology.
