Program description

MA in Psychology 

With our Master programme in English, a unique, multi-layered study course is waiting for you that prepares you for an equally diverse professional life and career.

The study course's clinical direction, which focuses on psychodynamic psychoanalytical approaches, provides solid education and training in research methods. At the same time, this is broadened on a fundamental level with in-depth knowledge from non-clinical application areas of psychological and psychoanalytical thinking.

While its curriculum is based on the recommendations of the German Psychological Society (DGPs), one focus of the studies is on learning to apply fundamental diagnostic, counselling and therapeutic competencies.

Furthermore, the conveying of empirical and statistical methods is intended to also include those ones which are especially suited to record and map the processes, as well as the results, of any psychoanalytical treatment. Ultimately, the course's psychoanalytical direction is also reflected in the fact that you not only become familiar with psychoanalysis as a psychotherapeutic method but also as a cultural theory and applied social science.

Admission requirements

University-entrance diploma; Bachelor's degree in psychology, accepted by uni-assist; English language proficiency certificate documenting proficiency at CEFR level Cl (e. g. CAE); video or telephone interview with an IPU professor.
