Start of study
Spring and fall semester
The general education part of the American psychology program helps provide a broader perspective beyond technical knowledge. This is important not only because German human resource managers explicitly demand more of this from those they hire from private universities, but also because a broad education is required to enter Master studies within the American university system. The language of instruction is English.
