Curriculum

Topics are divided into subjects, which in turn are organized into modules.

This includes subjects associated with the scientific nature of psychology, its methods and related sciences. Students will learn what psychology consists of, its methods and its development. They will also learn about related sciences such as ethics, anthropology, philosophy and neurology, which will help them define psychology from an epistemological point of view and understand its relationship with other sciences and the contemporary world. The majority of the subjects are taken during the first two academic years.

Main core. This covers: Basic psychological processes (related to attention, perception, learning, memory, intelligence, will, language, motivation, emotion, etc.), developmental and educational psychology (development of the individual throughout life, educational psychology), personality psychology (profiles, characteristics and behaviors), clinical psychology (assessment, diagnosis, treatment and therapy for behavior and personality illnesses and disorders) and social and organizational psychology (group and occupational psychology, etc.).

Made up of elective subjects. Subjects primarily from the Clinical and Health Psychology, Educational Psychology and Business Psychology branches are offered. Students will take elective subjects during the last two years of their study program. Students may choose subjects from any of the branches or those taught by the School of Education and Psychology. Students who opt for the Health Psychology specialization must create a specific plan.

Both subjects are designed to be closely linked to the other parts of the curriculum. Therefore, although internships are carried out during the final years of study, as close a link as possible will be sought between theory and practice. The Final Year Project should be related to the type of internship undertaken by students to ensure that they acquire more in-depth, specialized training.
