The programme’s overall objective is to provide a broad and in-depth knowledge base within the field of psychology. Courses are offered, for example, in social psychology, evolutionary psychology, cognition, biological psychology, stress and sleep, developmental psychology and work and organizational psychology.

You can study all the courses at the Department of Psychology, but you can also take some courses at other departments at Stockholm University, or even at other universities - in Sweden or abroad, as part of an exchange programme.

The programme includes research methodology, which may be of use in the labour market in general, but also as a preparation for further studies at the doctoral level in psychology.

The program leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) in the main field of study of psychology.
