BSc (Hons) Psychology Studies

Studying Human Behaviour

The program is designed according to the standards of the British Psychological Society and studies human behaviour, formal and informal, in ordinary as well as in extreme cases: emotion, thinking, motivation, voice of the brain in behaviour, interaction between person and society, behavioural differences between individuals, behavioural disorders, and psychopathology.

BSc students in Psychology Studies become familiar with the scientific method of data collection and analysis (applied quantitative statistics), while acquiring critical thinking skills, studying and applying various psychological examples to solve problems. Knowledge of human psychology is a valuable resource and professional qualification for many branches of Economics, where human behaviour is understood or guided.

Graduates can find work as psychologists but also in other fields: consulting or administrative services, social services, marketing, sales, advertising, education.

Members of Parliament may also specialize, pursuing postgraduate studies in psychology, such as clinical psychology, counseling psychology, forensic psychology, mental health, educational psychology, developmental psychology, career guidance, and neuropsychology.

Teaching and examinations at levels 3 and 4 (the first two classes) are done in either Greek or English. At levels 5 and 6 (the first last grades) only English.

Relevant work experience can be taken into account on an individual basis and in accordance with university regulations.
