Area of study
The study programme provides broad basic knowledge of psychological theories and goes into more detail on clinical psychology and diagnostics. The guiding theme here is the holistic view of people with regard to their perception, experience and actions. Students try different methods of psychotherapy and, from the beginning of the course, learn different ways to apply theoretical knowledge in practice and to actively contribute and engage in order to develop their personality. Online introductory seminars offer prospective students the opportunity to gain an impression of the Psychology study programme at Witten/Herdecke University.
The course is not subject to admission restrictions. Admission is granted based on a personal selection procedure. This includes application via the campus online system for examining the formalities for admission to higher education and the motivation of the applicant as well as a personal interview before a selection committee.

The internship must be completed by the time of registration/enrolment.\\\; Internship/professional activity must not be older than two years.
