With the master's program Psychology, a modern study concept was developed at the PHB focusing on the connection between practice and science. The degree course is aligned with the recommendations of the German Psychological Society and also provides insight into important practical fields.

  • Practical, legal and ethical principles of psychological work in research and practice are integrated into the study.
  • Trainer skills and skills for science communication are taught and practiced.
  • Regardless of the choice of the main subject, the basic module Clinical Psychology (10 CP) in this master's program ensures subsequent access to psychotherapist training (eg also for Bachelor graduates of the Fernuniversität Hagen)
  • All scientifically recognized psychotherapy procedures are taught equally in the basic module Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy:
    • Psychotherapy based on depth psychology
    • behavior therapy
    • psychoanalysis

  • After completing psychology studies, psychotherapeutic training in deep psychology-based psychotherapy or behavioral therapy is possible in-house.

I am looking for flexible study programs. Will you be able to study at the Psychologische Hochschule Berlin? I am already in working life and / or have children.

The Berlin Psychological University wants to take into account the reality of life of its students - family, children, work. The teaching concept takes into account the individual prerequisites, the resources and the development needs of the learners, allows them their own way of acquiring knowledge and enables them to achieve a multitude of their own learning goals that are not specified in advance.

In the dual system of psychotherapeutic training with integrated study courses are mainly held on weekends or in block periods on fixed dates. Although the practical activity and the hours of treatment are specified in their total number, in particular when registering for the examinations, they can be divided according to their own discretion. In the end, your own specifications and options determine the duration of your studies until the final exam. If you want to complete your studies and training within the 7-semester time frame, the time required equals full-time work.

The seminars of the Master program of Psychology take place primarily from Monday to Thursday. The postgraduate master's degree program in Legal Psychology is offered as an extra-occupational study program with seminars at the weekend.
