What will you learn

In the Psychology Bachelor's programme, you will research human behaviour, their mind and emotions. You will learn how the brain controls our behaviour and how we develop from infancy to old age. You will also learn to understand how our environment and social groups, influence how we think, act and feel. Are you ready to embark on a programme that will change your beliefs about the world and yourself?

Curriculum and courses

Future career opportunities

Since behaviour plays a role absolutely everywhere, you can find psychologists working in a wide range of functions and sectors, including aid, education, human resources management, public policy, counselling, training, coaching, sport and advertising. However, no matter how different the fields of work are, the psychologist's mission remains the same: to contribute to quality of life and society by changing unhealthy and undesirable behaviour.
