Psychology

As one of the relatively young sciences, Psychology formed as a fully developed study of human mind and behavior about a century ago, with Sigmund Freud being one of the first scientists to reveal the flourishing realms of human’s inner world and establish this field of knowledge. With a Master in Psychology, you will explore the many theoretical backgrounds for human behavior, emotions, and cognitions.

Nowadays, psychologists work on different levels, doing research on mental functions, social behavior and cognitive processes, as well as trying to understand the neurobiological nature of the mind. Professionals with a Master in Psychology, assist adjacent fields of sciences, such as Social Sciences, Philosophy, Humanities and Natural Sciences, using their methods to carry out research on a modern level. They include neuropsychological and computational methods, as well as comparative methods. Along with Theoretical Psychology, this subject offers vast opportunities for practical implications that play an enormous role in education, therapy, business, natural science research and even aesthetics! There are plenty of career opportunities for graduates holding a Master in Psychology in private practice, public organizations, schools, clinics, and businesses.

Despite the magnitude of the psychological field, you should not be taken aback. A Master in Psychology can provide a great career for anyone who is curious enough to look inside the mind! Find out more about the various Master in Psychology programs in just one click!
