Dear prospective students,

You are faced with an important decision regarding the choice of your studies. The study of psychology at the Catholic University of Croatia is a good choice for both your professional and personal development.

The study program of psychology was created following the example of related studies in this field, in prominent European and American, and especially Catholic universities. Shared principles arising froma the Bologna declaration and European Diploma in Psychology are respected in the program, as well as ethical principles in the work of psychologists, relating to respect for the human rights and dignity of each person, a high level of competence in work, and professional and scientific responsibility towards the people with whom they come into professional contact, and towards the community and society in which they live and work.

 

The main aim of the education of future psychologists is

the application and improvement of psychological knowledge, models and methods in an ethical and scientific manner, in order to promote the development, well-being and effectiveness of individuals, groups, organizations and society. The study program in psychology endeavours to ensure the prerequisites and environment in which scientific research, teaching, preparation for independent work in the profession and education as an integral part of the development of each person are conducted. Apart from the scientific foundations of studying, the program is also governed by the idea of intellectual openness and cooperation with related sciences and other study programs in  psychology in Croatia and the world.
