About Us

Psychology is a modern social science that has developed as an indispensable scientific discipline, not only because of scientific theories and knowledge from the main subject of its activity - human behavior and experience, but also because of the application of the results of psychological research in many areas of human activity. Demands for the profile of psychologists in developed societies are growing, and it is expected that this profession will be among the leaders in terms of employment in the coming decades.

The study program at undergraduate and graduate levels is in accordance with the European Diploma in Psychology, which guarantees that it provides professional competencies recognized within the European Union, and makes graduates in psychology fully qualified to compete in the labour markets. The study program is at the same time original, as it follows the basic concept of Croatian Studies, which is to approach students' education in an interdisciplinary manner. At the graduate level, this kind of program enables theoretical, methodological and practical education, training and training in several areas of applied psychology, especially clinical, organizational and educational. The education they have completed, the knowledge, competences and skills they have acquired and which are included in the curriculum of psychology studies, provide a graduated psychology student with a number of opportunities and make him a qualified and competitive participant in the existing labor market.
