Unraveling the mysteries of human conduct

In psychology, we analyze human conduct through the eyes of science. It is also a tool for applying the results we gain from such analysis to actual practice. Students studying on this major learn about the psychological theory, and, through a variety of experiments and tests, unlock the puzzles behind human conduct. After learning the fundamentals of the field, students choose from one of six areas of specialization: cognitive psychology, behavioral psychology, developmental and educational psychology, clinical psychology, comparative psychology or social psychology. The course puts a special emphasis on objectivity, in both psychological experiments and data analysis. Being able to conduct basic psychological tests is a prerequisite of obtaining a qualification as a certified psychologist. We offer students classes on how to conduct such basic tests, while seminars and other courses demonstrate how to perform more advanced types of tests. Students have access to the latest testing facilities and our state of the art testing facilities are exceedingly well equipped, and the specialist stationed there is always on hand to help. In addition to learning about the basic theory behind psychology, students learn how to use the technology and equipment on hand, and gain the expertise needed to carry out goal-oriented experiments. Undoubtedly, this practical experience will also aid students in their employment search.
