About

The five programme options are:

  • Cognitive Neuroscience
  • Arbeids- og organisasjonspsykologi
  • Helsepsykologi
  • Kultur- og samfunnspsykologi
  • Utviklingspsykologi

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS: Only the Cognitive Neuroscience programme is taught in English and welcomes international applicants as well as Norwegian/Nordic applicants. The other four disciplines require proficiency in Norwegian (Bergenstest or equivalent). The programme is delivered by University of Oslo.

Please note that the Master of Philosophy in Psychology is a theoretically oriented education of two years which does not give you an authorization to practice as a clinical psychologist in Norway. To become a clinical psychologist you have to apply for the profession oriented degree programme (6 years education) which is taught only in Norwegian (Bergenstest is needed).
