Welcome to the department of Psychology at the University of Trier.

The department of Psychology stands for a wide range of courses with an openness towards different perspectives. Besides being strongly research orientated with a focus on scientific thinking we also highly value the practical relevance of psychology and therefore the potential applications of the learned and researched theories.

Apart from specialist knowledge we allow our students the acquisition of general analysis-and problem-solving skills, where individual responsibility (independent work, critical reflection on the learnt material and working in an ethically responsible way) will be encouraged.
