Combine psychological expertise with a 21st-century, problem-solving approach.
Would you like to be a psychologist who can help others develop a positive, balanced, and resilient way of living? Do you see yourself using psychological expertise to design solutions for challenges in healthcare – for example, in clinical practice – business, education, or the fight against terrorism? Do you want to be a forward-looking psychologist who knows how to deal with the possibilities and risks of new technologies? Are you looking for a solid bachelor’s degree that combines classic psychology with a hands-on, 21st-century approach? Then our three-year, English-taught bachelor’s programme Psychology is the right choice for you.
At the University of Twente we believe that our increasingly complex society needs psychologists who have more to offer than knowledge of traditional psychology. We see it as our job to help you become a future-proof psychologist.
A lot of people tend to associate psychology mainly with clinical ‘couch psychology’. In our bachelor’s programme Psychology you will discover that psychology is much more than that – and offers far broader career prospects, too. Of course, you will build a solid foundation in clinical psychology, personality psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, social psychology and developmental psychology. On top of that, we will give you the tools you need to design effective interventions for new challenges in our rapidly changing world – using human-friendly robots, or creating smart solutions for tackling gaming addictions, or traffic risks resulting from mobile phone use. At the UT, you will learn to analyse personal or social problems in an academic way and to systematically work out a realistic solution in which your psychological knowledge is embedded.
