About

Students can choose from four different study plans. For each study plan, students are required to select one or two specializations out of the six specializations offered by the Faculty: affective psychology, applied psychology, clinical psychology, cognitive psychology, developmental psychology and social psychology.

Study Plans:
  • Intergrative clinical psychology

This study plan requires students to specialize in clinical psychology and a second specialization of their choice (affective, cognitive, developmental or social psychology).

  • Applied psychology

This study plan requires students to specialize in applied psychology and a second specialization of their choice (affective, cognitive, developmental or social psychology).

  • Basic psychology

This study plan requires students to specialize in two areas of basic psychology (affective, cognitive, developmental or social psychology).

  • In-depth research in psychology

This study plan requires students to select two areas of specialization (affective, cognitive, developmental or social psychology).

The first three study plans require students to complete an internship worth 15 credits; this may include internships in institutions, research internships in labs, and practical and theoretical workshops. The fourth study plan (In-depth research in psychology) does not include an internship; instead, students are required to carry out a more significant research project (dissertation and presentation worth 45 credits as opposed to 30 credits). This fourth study plan is aimed at students who are particularly interested in research and may wish to pursue their studies in a PhD programme. Each study plan also requires students to complete various methodological courses.
