    Psychology and its different fields

    Whilst studying Psychology, students can be found with a strong interest in the human psyche. In addition, there is a curiosity about the well-being of others or individual behavior patterns. Furthermore, a preference for statistics as well as analyses, experimental methods and diagnostics helps.

    During the basic studies, insights into the various fields of psychology are provided. Accordingly, students advance into basic psychology and explore it in applied as well as practical form. The typical job descriptions fall into the category of basic psychology. In addition to general psychological aspects, biological and differential psychology are also taught. The field is supplemented by developmental psychology.

    Applied psychology combines previously learned fundamentals with practice. The task is to find theoretical solutions using the available resources and to test them. In practical psychology, on the other hand, solutions are related to conscious issues and work is solution-oriented.

    The demand for psychological resources is constantly increasing. After all, in this fast-paced and complex world, our (mental) well-being is the most important asset. The study of psychology has adapted to the decades and thus offers an exciting and versatile range of professions.

    Today, psychologists can be found in various walks of life. In large companies, for example. There they act in the analysis of marketing strategies or co-design of the company. On the other hand, psychological counseling is offered to children and young adults. There is also a need for trained psychologists in research. These positions await after successful completion of the master’s program.
