special features
Special Features for Master's Courses: The four different master's programmes cover a very large spectrum of the field of psychology. Seventeen regular professorships are participating not only in teaching, but also directly support the students in their master''s thesis which is a crucial part of the curriculum (25%). The combination of the major subject with a large variety of minor subjects makes the master''s programme even more diverse and attractive as it enhances, combined with internships in psychological institutions, the students'' employability.
Alumni Programmes for Doctoral Students: An Alumni program of the Institute of Psychology has recently been established. Events will be organized soon. It is open for people holding all academic degrees (BSc, MSc, Dr. Prof.).
Alumni Programmes for Master's Students: The psych-alumni-association was founded in November 2008 and has the aim to facilitate postgraduate networking.
