Study Programmes

What makes studying Psychology at SFU so special?

All our psychology degree programmes are based on the same principles, objectives and values: basic training (Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes) is practice-oriented and takes place as far as possible in direct connection with existing practice and care facilities. All courses with a practising character are conducted in small groups. The individual supervision of students by professors and assistants, which is entirely geared towards personal support, is guaranteed by our open-door policy.

Studying psychology prepares students for a wide range of career opportunities. This wide spectrum of career prospects is matched by a broad range of research-based and research-guided teaching, especially in the Bachelor’s programme. The Bachelor psychology degree programme is oriented towards cultural and social sciences and provides a basic education in scientific psychology. The Master’s programme in psychology offers a scientific education preparing students for professional practice. 

In order to promote a readiness for interdisciplinarity from the very beginning, teaching is also offered in subjects that directly border on psychology: sociology, political science, historical anthropology, economics, etc. In contrast to the primarily natural science-oriented study programmes at Austrian and German state universities and colleges, the curricula of our psychology study programmes are also more oriented towards social science, cultural science and the humanities.
