Successful completion of the bachelor programme is a prerequisite for entry to the Psychology master programme. However, graduates are not awarded the professional title of psychologist, nor are they qualified to practise as independent psychologists in the meaning of the Austrian Psychologists Act. Graduates are qualified to work in clinical psychology as employees under professional supervision.
The programme is geared towards the development of the specific professional competences and core skills that can be applied in various areas of activity. It also provides graduates with the professional skills required to work in the related fields of psychosocial research, psychosocial statistics, psychotherapy and counselling services. The programme therefore provides a foundation for advanced education and training in psychotherapy that meets the requirements of Austrian and German law.
