What makes studying psychology at SFU so special?

The psychology programme at SFU also considers cultural sciences and thus offers an alternative to the prevailing approach towards psychology as belonging exclusively to the 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.
