This programme is very diverse and offers you the opportunity to select courses that suits your interests not only in psychology but also in other areas.
The Master in Psychology overall objective is to provide a broad and in-depth knowledge base within the field. Courses are offered, for example, in social psychology, evolutionary psychology, cognition, biological psychology, stress and sleep, developmental psychology and work and organizational psychology.
You can study all the courses at the Department of Psychology, but you can also take some courses at other departments at Stockholm University, or even at other universities - in Sweden or abroad, as part of an exchange programme.
The programme includes research methodology, which may be of use in the labour market in general, but also as a preparation for further studies at the doctoral level in psychology.
The programme is a coherent degree programme that comprises 120 credits, meaning four semesters of full-time studies. The programme consists of four main blocks:
Block A: 30 credits of compulsory courses
Block B: 30 credits of elective courses in psychology
Block C: 30 credits of entirely elective courses
Block D: Master’s thesis (30 credits)
