Special features regarding teachingThe course integrates relevant, basic psychological fundamental knowledge with regard to psychological theories, as well as qualitative and quantitative method training. From the second semester onwards, the knowledge acquired is used and trained independently in projects. Through constant feedback from lecturers and fellow students, the participants in the course continuously improve, so that they often receive job offers after their internships.
Special features regarding the international orientationIt is possible to replace one of the two practical semesters with a semester abroad at one of the numerous partner universities (e.g. Switzerland, Thailand, Norway and many more). Depending on the university, competencies in complementary psychological subjects can also be acquired. The English skills already integrated in the course can be deepened here.

Special features regarding research and developmentStudents are involved in ongoing research projects as part of method projects and project management.
