UNDERGRADUATE UNIVERSITY STUDIES IN PSYCHOLOGY

In Brief!

Academic title: Bachelor (baccalaureus/baccalaurea) of Psychology (univ. bacc. psych.)

Duration of studies: 6 semesters

Completion of studies: a minimum of 180 ECTS credits and passing of all exams

In each semester, students enrol in compulsory and elective courses (a minimum of 30 ECTS credits). The course of study includes courses in various fields of psychology such as general, developmental, clinical psychology, psychology of work, applied psychology etc.

As a rule, the students’ work in all courses is evaluated throughout the semester through periodic tests (preliminary exams, tests) and through activities at lectures, seminars and exercises (account for 70 % of the final mark) and the final exam (accounts for 30 % of the final mark). This model encourages students to study regularly and master the teaching material.

What are you going to learn?

The undergraduate course of study in Psychology gives students orientation in different fields of psychology and individual contents from disciplines akin to psychology. Students are trained for jobs that require application of basic research methods, techniques of data collection and statistical analysis, design and implementation of simple research and projects, presentation of professional content etc. Psychology courses make up the bulk of the study programme. However, interdisciplinarity is promoted to enrich the students’ general knowledge and expand their horizons beyond the profession. Thus, students enrol in courses in other disciplines and several courses in theology.

 

What can you do when you complete your studies?

This level of education is intended to acquire the required knowledge, competences and skills for graduate studies. This level of education does not enable students to practise psychology, nor does it give necessary qualifications to practise it.
