What will you learn

In the Bachelor’s programme in Psychology, you will research the behaviour, mind and emotions of humans. You will learn how the brain controls our behaviour and how we develop, from infancy to old age. Moreover, you learn to understand how our environment and the social groups of which we are a part, influence the way we think, feel and act. Are you ready to embark on a programme that will change your beliefs about people, the world and your self-image?

Curriculum and courses

Future career opportunities

Because behaviour plays a role anywhere and everywhere, you find psychologists working in a diverse range of functions and sectors, such as: aid, education, human resources management, public policy, counseling, training and coaching, sport and advertising. But no matter how different the fields of work are, the mission of the psychologist remains the same: contribute to the quality of life and society by changing unhealthy and undesirable behaviour.
