Psychology: a comprehensive introduction

Course periods

The Psychology minor of 30 credits (EC) is offered in two semesters (10 EC in semester 1 and 20 EC in semester 2). To complete the minor, you need one entire academic year (September - July).


This minor provides a representative and coherent overview of the entire discipline. It is representative because it constitutes a first acquaintance with the main currents and themes within psychology. It is coherent because it introduces students to the different psychological subdisciplines emphasizing their common elements.
