Psychology Master’s programme
The master’s programme Psychology, which is oriented towards natural and social sciences, enhances and deepens students’ theoretical, professional and practical research and knowledge acquired in the bachelor’s programme. Students have the opportunity of concentrating on one of four focuses to enable them to individualise their qualification profile and adapt it to their future career plan. Students may choose between: “Industrial and Organizational Psychology”, “Clinical Psychology”, “Cognitive and Affective Neurosciences” or “Learning, Development, Counselling”. After completing the master’s programme, graduates may pursue further training in the area of Psychology, e.g. in clinical and/or health psychology. Students should be able to select, plan, develop and implement psychological prevention, intervention and training measures based on theories and methods. Over the course of the programme, students enhance their capabilities in the areas of empirical research, counselling interviews, counselling, conflict settlement and project management, as well as improving their mediation skills. An obligatory placement completes this application-oriented study programme.
Graduates of the master’s programme will be comprehensively trained psychologists able to pursue an independent professional career (Psychologists Act, Federal Law Gazette n° 182/2013). Graduates will be able to plan, conduct and evaluate scientific investigations independently. They will be qualified to provide psychological diagnoses and expertise for individuals, groups and organisations.
