About the programme

The master's programme builds on bachelor's degree with specialization in psychology. The nominal length of the master's study is 2 years. The master's programme qualifies for further studies on doctoral level.

The aim of the master's study in psychology is to give the students academic competence within the discipline on a level that provides skills in discussing general psychological questions based on a principal, critical and solution oriented mindset. The academic competence therefore has a dual goal, meaning that it is general and therefore applicable on several tasks in the society, but also specific because it may be the start of a researcher's education.

The master in psychology, specialization in learning – brain, behavior, environment is one of two specialization within the master's progamme in psychology.
