BSc in Psychology



What will I learn?

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?

Future career opportunities

Because behaviour is everywhere, psychologists are employed in a wide range of areas. Some examples of job positions:

  • Health care psychologist
  • Work and organisational psychologist
  • Behavioural change advisor, e.g. in advertising, sports or for the government
  • Scientific researcher
  • Coach/trainer/teacher
