Studying psychology at the University of Pécs

Psychology is challenging, exciting and useful, and is now one of the most popular University subjects in Europe. As the study of behaviour, it has close links with the biological and social sciences as well as with the humanities such as philosophy and literature.

At the University of Pécs you may study psychology as a Single Honours degree on BA and MA level. This can lead to careers in, for example, clinical, counselling, educational, forensic, health or occu-
pational psychology. 

Various spheres

Many psychology graduates work in diverse occupations that do not carry the title ‘psychologist’ because the skills acquired while studying psychology transfer readily to various spheres in the world of work and provide an excellent general education. In our MA program you have the opportunity to gain specific knowledge in the field of counselling and school psychology in a small-group, practicum-oriented curri-
culum.
