Psychology Bachelor’s programme

Course outline, qualifications and competences

The bachelor’s programme Psychology is intended to provide students with a basic range of subjects of psychology based on natural science. Graz as a study location is especially focused on empirical methods with a strong biological and psychophysiological orientation. This programme provides basics in psychological disciplines, e.g. clinical psychology, health psychology and neuropsychology, pedagogical psychology and Industrial and organisational psychology as well as ecopsychology. An essential part of the training is developing competence in empirical and socio-scientific research methods (statistics, application of statistical computer processes, developing and evaluating questionnaires, behavioural monitoring, etc.). Students learn methods of application, analysis and critical observation. By actively participating in experiments, by designing, implementing and evaluating their own experiments and completing an obligatory placement, students gather practical experience. They develop theoretical knowledge and competences for counselling, skill in conducting interviews, presentation techniques and mediation, thus gaining insight into group dynamic processes. The bachelor’s programme Psychology does not qualify students for independent professional activities as a psychologist according to the “Psychologists Act” (Federal Law Gazette n° 182/2013). Psychologists are only authorised to bear the professional title “psychologist” after completing a master’s programme.

Expected results

Undergraduates of the bachelor’s programme Psychology will have acquired practical skills in various psychological disciplines. They will be familiar with methods of diagnostics, counselling and individual and group intervention in professional, business, school and clinical contexts and can empirically research, describe and explain human behaviour and experience with consideration of biological and socio-cultural principles.
