In psychology, the master’s degree has a high priority, because it is only during the master’s phase that you deepen your scientific knowledge and focus, which is a prerequisite for a large number of classic professional fields and for the granting of a license to practice as a psychotherapist. In the master’s degree, the methodological knowledge already acquired for scientific data collection and analysis is deepened and expanded to include methods of multivariate statistics. Furthermore, diagnostic knowledge on test theory and construction is imparted and introduced into psychological assessment. The independent implementation of empirical project work and a study-integrated, job-related internship contribute to the further development and consolidation of scientific and professional skills.

The Master’s program in Psychology at the University of Bonn offers a variety of options for focusing on various basic and application subjects, so that a study profile can be created that corresponds to personal interests, skills and professional plans.
