Students of Psychology learn about human experiences and behaviour. Based on empirical research, students attempt to describe, understand and predict human behaviour in all areas of life as well as implications for psychological interventions.
The academic programme at the University of Heidelberg qualifies students to pursue a career in Psychology or to continue research and study in this area. There are two Master’s programmes for the two different areas of specialisation. Both areas of specialisation convey methodological and diagnostic fundamental skills and knowledge enabling students to earn a general Master of Science in Psychology at the end of the academic programme.
Occupational AreasThe career options of the graduates are as diverse as the subject itself (the professional title ‘psychologist’ may not be used until after graduating from the Master’s degree programme). Depending on the areas of specialisation, graduates may find work in
- occupational psychology
- educational counselling
- human resources development
- opinion research
- school psychology
- business consultancy
Areas of specialisation:
- Developmental and Clinical Psychology
