Master’s Degree in Psychology
The Master’s Degree in Psychology is split into two different curricula in an intra- and inter-disciplinary manner: Clinical Psychology and Neurosciences.
The specialisation courses ensure robust and consistent curricula, and the extensive space intentionally reserved in both curricula for learning activities chosen by the student allows them to identify the path which best suits their educational interests, as long as this is consistent with the master’s degree course curriculum.
