Psychology: Human Resources, Technology, Organisation

Master of Science

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


The more research-oriented Master’s degree programme in Psychology enables students to specialise in their fields of interest. The focus of the course is on work, organisational and business psychology. It is scientifically-methodically and interdisciplinary-technically oriented. The programme prepares the students for independent and scientifically sound psychological work in different fields of research and application, where the skills, functionality, and state of a person must be in line with requirements that can be a result of findings of the disciplines of engineering and business administration for the individual.

Students will acquire knowledge about psychological research and work techniques from an augmented understanding of the fundamentals, which will be implemented practically and in a model-oriented manner and will be evaluated comparatively to alternative approaches from psychology and other disciplines.

Please note the information provided by the Institute of Psychology: The current Master's programme in Psychology has an application focus on industrial, engineering, organisational and business psychology. It is not a 'clinical' Master's degree. It will no longer be possible to train as a psychotherapist after completing the programme.
