The following English language content is for information purposes only. The legally binding content can be found on the corresponding German website.

Please note:

The B.Sc. Psychologie programme at the TU Darmstadt does not meet the legal requirements for psychotherapist training. This means that the B.Sc. Psychologie at the TU Darmstadt does not allow students to train as psychotherapists. Please read the information provided by the Institut für Psychologie.


In psychology, scientific-experimental methods are used to investigate cause-effect relationships in human experience and behaviour that cannot be recognised without scientific means.

The Institute of Psychology at TU Darmstadt conducts basic research in perception and cognition, human development, social psychology and physiological psychology. The main areas of application are occupational and engineering psychology, organisational and business psychology as well as media and educational psychology.

Master's Programmes

General Information: With the Bachelor of Science, the students will acquire a first professional qualification. However, the Master of Science is considered the standard qualification at Technical University of Darmstadt. For these reasons it is recommended that students complete a Master’s degree.

Please note that admission to the Master’s Degree programme may also depend on additional requirements. This particularly applies to non-consecutive courses of study (meaning with a Bachelor’s degree in a different area of focus or field of study than the desired Master’s degree programme) and to applicants of other universities. If you have any questions, please contact the respective departmental advisor’s office.

Psychologie: Arbeit, Technik, Organisation, M.Sc.

Entry into the profession directly after the B.Sc. Psychologie degree is the exception. The standard degree for this is the Master's degree. This is mainly due to the lack of career opportunities for B.Sc. Psychologie graduates in the clinical sector. Possible career fields exist in human resources (assessment centres), marketing and market research and Management consultancy (organisational development, conception of training and continuing education courses).

Graduates of the M.Sc. PsychologIe: Arbeit, Technik, Organisation programme at the TU Darmstadt can work in different professional fields, e.g. in interdisciplinary teams with engineers, managers, health personnel and teachers, or as experts in the fields of Human Factors and Human Resources in organisational contexts. With the M.Sc. Psychologie: Arbeit, Technik, Organisation of TU Darmstadt, entering the training as a psychotherapist is no longer possible.
