Since the winter semester 2021/22, PHB (Berlin Psychological University) has offered the new Master's degree course, which conforms to the requirements for licensing, MSc Psychology: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy The degree course is designed in accordance with the requirements of the reform of the Psychotherapists Act and prepares students for the new licensing examination and a procedure-specific further training as a specialist psychotherapist. In small year groups and seminar groups, students at PHB receive close and personal support from professors and lecturers who are both first-class scientists and experienced psychotherapists in the clinical field and thus represent the Scientist Practitioners approach. Furthermore, diversity of procedures is one of the main priorities of PHB. Accordingly, the exchange with and between representatives of different psychotherapeutic directions is promoted. In the new clinical Master's degree course, students now have extra time and space to get to know the four scientifically recognised procedural directions, to orient themselves and thus to find out which direction suits them best. Finally, with the academic degree, students are optimally prepared for the newly designed licensing examination. Subsequently, a procedure-specific further qualification can be completed directly at the PHB in three procedure disciplines if desired.
Admission requirements include a bachelor's degree in psychology that meets the requirements of the Psychotherapist Act Reform and includes a psychotherapy profile area.
