Description

Psychology is the empirical science of the experience, behaviour and consciousness of people.

The B. Sc. Psychology programme imparts comprehensive theoretical, methodical and practical professional knowledge in a wide range of areas: general and cognitive psychology (e.g. perception, learning, memory, attentiveness, emotion, motivation, language, reasoning), biological psychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, personality psychology, psychological research methodology and statistics, psychological diagnostics, clinical psychology, work and organisational psychology, and educational psychology. A 23-week professional internship is integrated into the programme. The programme qualifies students for socially responsible psychological work in professional practice, primarily in health, social services and educational institutions and in business. In the process students will be qualified to carry out routine psychological occupations in a variety of professional fields.

Successfully completing the B. Sc. Psychology programme represents an admission requirement for the M. Sc. Psychology programme, in which students acquire deeper theoretical, methodical and practical professional skills, which are necessary for working independently as a psychologist. Successfully completing the M. Sc. Psychology programme (at the moment offered by Universität Leipzig from the winter semester 2010/11) is a necessary qualification for continuing education measures e.g. to become a psychological psychotherapist.
