Psychology Department switched to a new system of electives. Students can now take concentrations in psychology, which combines 4 and more elective courses and receive the certificate of concentration upon completion of these courses.
Concentrations in Psychology allow students of the Psychology department to focus on a specific area of study and study this topic from different perspectives and subject areas. Concentration not only allows students to choose what they want to study, but also helps students to develop specific skills and competences required to build a career in the chosen area. Furthermore, concentration prepares a basis for the senior thesis research, as well as further research in Master and Doctoral programs.
In case if the students of the Psychology department want to focus on the specific area and to be certified in one of the following concentrations, they may choose from the list below.
In order to declare a concentration, student may take at least 24 credits of the corresponding concentration on voluntary basis.
