Consider a psychology bachelor in Groningen

Bachelor Psychology

Psychology at University of Groningen is unique for its broad education programme and its expertise across many domains.

Psychology pervades all forms of human activity and psychologists deal with human behaviour and development in many fields, including psychological treatment, education, work place, sports, environment, traffic, health, media, and more. In clinical professions, for example, they are concerned with the treatment of people with emotional or behavioural disorders or are supporting patients with neurological deficits. Developmental issues are central to clinical work as well, since origins of maladaptive behaviour often lie in early childhood.

In the bachelor program, you learn about theories of the biological, cognitive, and social factors influencing behaviour. In addition, you obtain basic conversational and diagnostic skills necessary for work in practice. Finally, you are trained to get an in-depth focus on the statistical knowledge and skills essential to scientific research, and you learn to reflect on scientific theory in psychology. In the third year of the Bachelor, you have the possibility to specialise in a domain of your own interest and that fits best with the track in your future Master.
