WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Start your dream study psychology now

You want to take an in-depth look at human behavior?
Find explanations for our actions in private and professional social relationships?
You wonder what influences our thoughts and feelings, and how this determines our actions?

Then the Psychology (B.Sc.) degree program is just right for you!

Psychology is the science of human behavior and experience. It deals with the interplay of emotions and cognitions, theorizes, and attempts to explain behavior and make it predictable.

This means that there is an almost endless number of questions that psychologists would like to address in an economic context.

At INU, you can choose from concentrations in clinical psychology, health psychology, and market, advertising, and media psychology. The structure of the program corresponds to the recommendations of the German Society for Psychology (DGPs) and you can study psychology with us without numerus clausus and waiting semesters.

Study contents

At the beginning, the “Introductory Project to Self-Organized Learning” comprehensively prepares you for studying. You will gain insights into how to organize your studies in the best possible way and become familiar with the use of important IT systems and digital communication tools.

The psychology program includes basic, applied, practical, and supplemental modules.
Basic subjects include general psychology, biological psychology, and developmental psychology. Here you acquire the basic knowledge for the later application modules.
Application modules include subjects such as Diagnostic Procedures and Educational Psychology.
Subjects such as systemic coaching or communication psychology cover important neighboring disciplines in applied psychology.

You will have the opportunity to apply the knowledge you have acquired in a practical work project as well as in experimental hours. Here, you will also get to know everyday professional life and come into contact with experiments and scientific studies.

By choosing two concentrations, you determine the subject areas in which you would like to develop a special expertise and qualify for professional employment and advancement opportunities. You currently have a choice of three concentrations: Clinical psychology, health psychology and market, advertising and media psychology.

Optionally, you can also choose a focus from one of the other combinable degree programs.

Last but not least, you will complete your Bachelor’s thesis in the last semester, which will conclude your studies.
