The Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in Psychology at SFU Berlin include both a well-founded basic scientific education (for example, by teaching quantitative and qualitative methods) and a practical qualification for later employment. Our teaching concept is based on three focal points: Theory, practice and self-awareness. Our teaching team is made up of researchers and practitioners from various professional fields in psychology. Interculturality and international exchange are also central focal points of our teaching. Students studying in the English MA program can specialize in either Business & Economic Psychology or in Clinical Psychology & Public Mental Health.
