Individual courses are interconnected more strongly than in traditional Psychology Bachelor Programmes. These links are both vertical and horizontal, i.e., among the courses of each semester. Four academic training tracks structure the six semesters:

__Theory
__Scientific methods and basic skills
__Foundations for inter and transdisciplinary research
__Psychological skills

Most courses within these tracks are consecutive. Furthermore, individual courses are also linked “horizontally” across tracks. These cross connections between courses allow students to connect theory and practice and to experientially compare different paradigms, as each semester offers different paradigmatic perspectives on the same phenomenon.
