The goals and the career paths of the three-year German psychology program are comparable to those of the American program. The curriculum follows an extensive sequence of psychology courses with small additional components of elective and general education courses. With the diversity of courses and focus on intercultural psychology and soft skills, we are uniquely positioned among undergraduate psychology programs in Germany. Even though this is a German degree track, the language of instruction is English.

The German degree delivers the general requirements for further studies in German Master’s programs in psychology – the so-called Anschlussfähigkeit – which include Psychologisches Grundlagenwissen und seine Anwendung in Forschung und Praxis (140 Credit Points), Grundlagen wissenschaftlichen Arbeitens (15 Credit Points) Nichtpsychologischem Wissen zu kultur- und zivilisationstheoretischen Grundlagen (25 Credit Points).

Required psychology courses (140 Credit Points) include Allgemeine Psychologie I und II, Grundlagen der Diagnostik, Sozialpsychologie, Entwicklungspsychologie, Biologische Psychologie, Persönlichkeitspsychologie, Klinische Psychologie, Arbeits- und Organisationspsychologie, Kommunikation und Interaktion, Diagnostik und Intervention, Statistik I, II, Psychologische Forschungsmethoden, Psychologisches Praktikum, Studien- und Forschungsprojekt, and the Bachelor-Thesis.
