Bachelor in Psychology
Psychology is a universal and widely applied science. You cannot manage without the knowledge of psychology in any area of life where you deal with people – in family, at school, in an organisation as well as in the computer science, advertising, or even space. During your studies in the programme, you will find out why people behave, feel, or think in one way or another and how they interact. You will learn how, based on scientific research findings, psychologists seek to understand such phenomena as human development from infancy to old age, mental health, learning, personality, and many other things. During your apprenticeship periods, you will get acquainted with the specificity of psychologist’s work in various fields, test yourself, and choose further studies in the field of interest for you. The acquired knowledge will help you to better understand yourself and others.
