The Bachelor of Arts Psychology course at the International Psychoanalytic University imparts psychology as a science which maps the human as a social and cultural being. Students learn how human individuals develop themselves in social and societal contexts, how they shape and structure their surroundings, how they become mentally ill under unfavourable conditions, and how they can become healthy again in a conducive relationship bond using psychological means.

Psychoanalytical psychology has been developed in practice and it has to prove itself in real applications. The intention with the course is to reflect the interdependence between theory formation on the one hand and application on the other: The students learn, in close contact with practice, how psychological concepts emerge from the practical resolution of concrete problems and impact on them in turn. One essential aspect here is that the graduates from this study course become capable of working independently in the field of psychology; to this extent, the BA PsychologyPLUS at the IPU is intended to provide a long-term qualification for a professional career in psychology. The study course has been approved and officially accredited until 2017 by the Berlin Senate.... [-]
