About this course
The B.Sc./M.Sc. courses in Psychology at Heidelberg University provide a broadly conceived education in the foundational and application-oriented sectors of the subject. To facilitate study sojourns abroad and changes from one university to another, the course design is in line with the recommendations issued by the German Psychological Society.
One major concern of the course is to provide students with a sound knowledge of the methodologies applied in psychological research. Another is to provide at this early stage a wide range of seminars, practical classes and internships giving students an accurate impression of the various fields in which psychologists are professionally active.
Via the systematic combination of compulsory-elective options, students are invited (but not required) to organise at least a part of their studies in line with their own interests or inclinations.
