The one-year master’s in Psychology programme offers six specializations within Applied Cognitive Psychology and Biological Psychology:
- Health and Social Psychology
- Psychology and Law
- Work and Organisational Psychology
- Developmental Psychology
- Cognitive Neuroscience
Only exchange students who have obtained 180 ECTS during their bachelor programme (or equivalent) are allowed to choose a maximum of 2 master’s courses from the one-year master’s programme in psychology. This option is only possible for fall students, since the second part of the master’s programme is devoted to a research internship.
Courses from the research master or forensic master programme are not open to exchange students.
