The Faculty of Human Sciences launched the undergraduate degree in Psychology in the 2012-2013 academic year with a curriculum that reflects the domains of greatest current activity in the field of Psychology at the international level as well as the strengths of the research and interventions of the teaching staff.
Characterised by a clear emphasis on an inter-disciplinary approach, with strong connections between the respective curricular units, the program also clearly targets the interlinkages between Psychology and other sciences such as Biology and Neuroscience, the cognitive sciences as well as healthcare, family and development sciences.
The program also extends to the field of Psychology falling within the universes of labour, the economy and careers and is structured so as to endow solid training in transversal competences across the various domains of Psychology and correspondingly providing intense training in research and practical tasks.
The degree also invests in the diversity of the sub-fields with which students come into contact, such as Social Psychology, Family Psychology, the Psychology of Emotions and Motivation, Organisational Psychology, the Psychology of Development, Neuropsychology and Clinical Psychology.
The active participation of students in academic activities, such as research, interventions and the organisation of scientific events represents a dimension that receives strong encouragement. Students also benefit from the personalised orientation and a system of tutorials that provide them with global and integrated support.
For those seeking to continue their studies at UCP, the Undergraduate Degree in Psychology closely interrelates with the Psychology of Wellbeing and Promoting Health, Psychology in Business and Economics and Neuropsychology Master’s Degrees taking place on the Lisbon campus.
