Department of Psychology

Our Department introduces students to psychology, a science that deals with human experience and behaviour. The Department of Psychology consists of a young and dynamic team of researchers with international resonance and a strong presence in the media. The studies in Freiburg are characterized by a trilingual environment as well as by a pleasant atmosphere created by human-sized structures and easy contacts with the teaching staff.
