Bachelor of Science in Psychology

General Content

This programme represents the first stage in training that allows students to acquire a solid basic knowledge of psychology, as well as a scientific and methodological way of thinking. It is important to note that the Bachelor’s degree is not in itself a sufficient qualification to practice as a psychologist in Switzerland. For this, a Master’s degree is indispensable.

Various branches of psychology are taught at the University of Lausanne, including:

  • Developmental psychology
  • General psychology
  • Psychopathology and clinical psychology
  • Psychology of health
  • Social psychology
  • Psychology of counselling in university and careers guidance
  • Psychosocial gerontology
