Masters after a Psychology Bachelor

After your Bachelor, you also have the chance to develop your psychology expertise further in a Masters at a university in Germany or abroad.

You can continue your studies at the Leuphana Graduate School with an International Joint Master of Research in Work and Organizational Psychology.

The Psychology major's focus on the fundamentals means there are a range of psychology Masters programmes open to you provided they do not require knowledge of clinical psychology.

The course content of the major will generally meet the entry requirements for psychology Masters programmes at other universities that demand an in-depth knowledge of psychology principles and a grasp of psychology research and diagnostics methodology.
