  • Special features regarding teaching
    Teaching in the Bachelor's degree in Psychology allows for individual specialisation, especially in the third academic year, thanks to the compulsory elective module structure. The acquisition of academic skills is promoted through courses which take place alongside thesis writing, in which the theory and practice of academic work are taught. A specialisation can optionally be chosen in the Master's degree course. Overall, there is a high degree of flexibility with regard to the focus. A fast-track doctorate programme is available for particularly qualified BSc graduates.
