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.

Media and Digital Journalism

Sigmund Freud University offers you a unique combination: media professionals of many years’ standing have developed the curriculum for the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programme Media and Digital Journalism. This wealth of experience forms the basis for a university degree programme that meets the professional requirements for the journalists of tomorrow. From the first semester onwards, you will pursue your own media and research projects and find out which media profession suits you and your talents through the diversity of the degree programme. The courses take place in small groups. This ensures personal contact between lecturers and students and intensive individual support.


Sigmund Freud University itself and all regular university studies in psychology conducted by the Faculty of Psychology are accredited by the Agency for Quality Assurance Austria in Austria. The academic degrees awarded correspond to the degrees of a “recognised domestic post-secondary educational institution” and are, like these, internationally recognised.
