Select your program

Psychology

Traditionally, academic training in Psychology has used expository, unidirectional teaching methods where students are passive agents in receiving knowledge, and not active in applying that knowledge to the professional context. Our Psychology degree follows an innovative academic model, where teaching is based on skills which simultaneously develop knowledge, competences and attitudes, where the student becomes the protagonist of their learning. This approach is based on a systemic teaching of knowledge inherent to Psychology’s scientific area, with work simulations and real-life immersion in a real professional context, close relationship with leading partner entities and interaction with other healthcare professionals.

By understanding the needs of future professionals, the synergy between the development of soft skills (relational/social/emotional skills) and hard skills (technical skills) is promoted, as well as internationalization experiences, key aspects when it comes to training global professionals in Psychology.
