Course of studies

The full-time course of study normally comprises three theoretical semesters in full-time.

Your studies are modularly structured, whereby you will gain partial qualifications after completing the individual modules. If you successfully complete individual modules with an examination, you will be credited a certain number of credit points (ECTS points). The curriculum provides for the acquisition of 30 ECTS in each of the three semesters, so that your points account will count for at least 90 credit points in total upon successful completion of your master's degree.

Upon successful completion, you start your professional life with the academic degree Master od Arts (M.A.). Students who start their studies in the winter semester 2022/23 will receive the academic degree Master of Science (M.Sc.)



The first two semesters of your studies in Applied Organizational Psychology include the following modules:

  • Personality Psychology
  • Industrial and health psychology

  • Organizational and social psychology
  • Market and advertising psychology
  • Leadership Psychology

In the third semester you will write your master's thesis and complete the master's seminar.
