  • Special features regarding teaching
    The psychology programme is interdisciplinary. This is ensured by both the internal structure of the individual courses as well as through the choice of compulsory and elective courses. Small number of lectures and numerous seminars in small groups allow a high level of interaction and the possibility to tailor material to individual interests. The latest research is integrated into teaching and students are encouraged to become actively involved in research projects themselves. The high degree of internationality of the student body at Jacobs University Bremen is fully integrated into the course topics.
