What makes studying psychology at SFU so special?

The psychology programmes at SFU put an emphasis on cultural sciences and thus offer an alternative to the prevailing approach towards psychology as belonging exclusively to natural sciences.

Advantages of our special programme structure:

  • Transfer of knowledge and skills in small groups enables individual support and also guarantees the students’ involvement in how the teaching gets designed.
  • An efficient information flow ensures that innovative research fields tackled at SFU are also taught in a direct and prompt way. 
  • In addition, students may gain practical expertise in-house at the SFU’s Outpatient Clinic.

The psychology study programmes at SFU are offered in English and German. Find out more about our degree courses, research and events … 

So, why study Psychology at SFU?
