Bachelor in Psychology
You might have enough thoughts in your head right now, but would it not be exciting to look into someone else's head? Psychology is the study of humans and how behaviour, actions and experiences can be explained and understood through theories based on scientific methods.
At the Department of Psychology both research and learning take place in which great emphasis is placed on both fundamental psychology disciplines as well as practical psychology. The fundamental psychology disciplines include:
Some examples of relevant topics in psychology:
- peer pressure and crime
- experience of risk
- the social construction of sickness and health
- creativity and improvisation
- how do nerve cells form memory?
- leave of absence and adjustment to work
A bachelor's degree in psychology requires three years of study (180 ECTS) and the student may combine different courses. Detailed information about the courses and the language of instruction may be found in the course list.
You have to meet the Norwegian language requirements, or have a Scandinavian language as your mother tongue, if you want to apply to any of NTNU's degree programmes. You also must meet the basic requirement for admission, and demonstrate that you meet the English language requirements.
The application deadline for the programme is March 1st for students with an international degree, and April 15th for Norwegian and Nordic degree students. Students apply through Samordna Opptak.
