Our Concept

Psychology is concerned with the study of the mind and behavior. Accordingly, the Psychology program deals with how people perceive the environment, themselves and others, how they learn, remember, think, decide and feel. It focuses on the theoretical understanding and empirical investigation of the mind and behavior, as well as applications in a variety of settings. We consider not only psychological processes but also biological, social, and cultural processes. We particularly focus on diversity, with respect to relationships between individuals as well as the composition of groups and, more broadly, society in a globalized – and further globalizing – world. In addition to psychological content, the program includes also training in analytical skills and research methods as well as a range of applied (interpersonal and intercultural) skills.
