The Bachelor of Science programme Psychology at Technical University of Darmstadt has a special emphasis on the the following sub-disciplines:
- General Psychology
- Biological Psychology
- Social Psychology
- Differential and Personal Psychology
- Developmental Psychology
- Psychological Diagnostics
In the Optional Subject Area students may choose modules from the following areas (among others): Pedagogical Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Clinical Psychology and Cognitive Modeling.
Another aspect of the programme is the acquisition of skills the fields of research methodology and statistics.
The current Bachelor's programme in psychology does not fulfil the legal requirements for future training as a psychotherapist. Students who take up the Bachelor's programme in Psychology in the winter semester 2020/21 and possibly complete it here will therefore not have access to the new psychotherapy Master's programme. This excludes training as a psychotherapist.
