|Degree:||Master of Arts (MA)|
A master’s degree in psychology is an essential foundation for professions in all fields of psychology, from clinical work to academic research. Students in the graduate psychology program at the University of New York in Prague will be thoroughly prepared at both theoretical and practical levels.
This two-year program is based on specialized theoretical subjects (e.g., current topics of general psychology such as the psychology of personality and developmental psychology), which provide the foundation for related applied and clinical disciplines (e.g., clinical psychology and health psychology, school and educational psychology, personnel psychology). Supervised internships form an integral part of the UNYP master’s degree in psychology, as they provide graduates with practical experience for acquiring crucial knowledge and skills unavailable in books alone. The design and implementation of an original scientific research project and thesis prepares students for independent research expertise and forms an equally essential part of the program. Courses run primarily on the weekends in order to support students’ internship and potential work needs during the week.
This graduate degree has been accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport. Students who attain the Czech master’s degree in psychology will have the right to use the title Mgr.
