Study psychological theory, research, and practice, with an emphasis on their application in a Danish and European context.

Program Highlights

  • Understand how psychological theory is applied and practiced in Denmark by hearing from guest lectures and local organizations who share real-world examples from the field
  • Travel with your classmates and DIS faculty on course-integrated study tours regionally and across Europe, where you meet and discuss central themes with key researchers, clinicians, policy-makers, and organizations in the field of psychology
  • Engage in hands-on experiences in your field with a supplemental practicum or lab attached to your core course

Student Profile

This program is right for you, if you are interested in psychology, neuroscience, the health sciences, human development, or sociology.

I’ve had a unique experience learning from a professor who actually teaches the theories she applies in her work as a therapist. During our Practicum, we translate what we have learned and observed into meaningful action.”
