For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Psychology or an equivalent university degree comprising at least six semesters of study of psychology. Candidates must be able to show that they have completed at least 20 credits in the field of research methods and statistics, 10 credits in the field of clinical psychology, 10 credits in the field of psychological diagnosis, and and 5 credits in the field of occupational, professional, and organizational psychology.

  • Proof of English language skills (CEFR Level B2) for applicants whose native language is other than English and who did not earn their prior degree at an institution where English is the language of instruction.

The admission is limited.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The master’s degree “Clinical Psychology and Health Psychology” is an application-oriented course. By combining clinical and health psychology, it takes account of national and international developments in health policy and concomitant changes in the European labour market. The curriculum reflects ecological, social, cultural, and institutional factors as well as gender-related issues. The course content is well-grounded in terms of both methodology and diagnostics. The teaching of general methodological skills will be complemented by subject-specific seminars on methodology in the areas of health-services and intervention research as well as on specific diagnostic methods. The master dissertation is planned and prepared under personalized supervision. Further methodological skills will be obtained through participation in research projects on clinical psychology and health psychology.
