Course Overview


In the assessment year, we organise the German- and English language course programme "Psychology" as part of the context studies. The approximately 12 courses each semester cover topics from social psychology, clinical, ecological and general psychology as well as occupational and organisational psychology. A competent and committed team of lecturers and assistant lecturers teaches here, some of whom have also completed their doctorates at our department.

The Master courses are based on contemporary research interests and thus prioritise our own current projects and research questions.

In the Master's programmes SIM, MOK, MIA and MSC we offer courses on selected topics such as organisational behaviour, group dynamics and qualitative research methods. Furthermore, we offer specialised courses in context studies, e.g. in the focus areas: Creativity, Cultures, Responsibility and Law.
