Psychology is the discipline concerned with studying mental functions and social behaviours while exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie them. In practice, psychology has been expanding dramatically over the last years, both in terms of the number of psychologists and the diversification and development of their methods and roles.
As a student on our Degree in Psychology, you will gain the specialist knowledge and practical skills needed to carry out your profession. Our Faculty was one of the first in introducing studies in psychology in Spain, and is now considered one of the nation’s best thanks to our experienced and highly qualified staff, along with the high quality research being produced.
This four-year degree is comprised of four learning stages: basic subjects, core subjects, elective subjects and an internship. Basic subjects provide a grounding in the fundamentals of psychology and other areas like psychobiology, learning and research. Our core subjects cover more specific areas, such as neuropsychology, psychometrics, psychopathologies and psychological treatment.
There is also a wide selection of elective subjects in areas like developmental psychology, community psychology, clinical psychology, the psychology of ageing and clinical psychoanalysis. While completing our degree, you will also complete a supervised internship, which is considered a fundamental part of your training. Your internship will be taken on your fourth and final year, corresponding to 18 credits.
Our Degree in Psychology is aimed at offering students the training and skills required to enter the job market or to continue their professional training. Our graduates are highly qualified to work in a number of areas. Psychologists can work in a great variety of fields, including hospitals, schools, companies, prisons, universities, the court cases and NGOs.

Psychology is an expanding profession, as psychologists are becoming more and more in demand in our society. Professionals working in this field find it to be immensely fulfilling. Work in psychology not only benefits the psychologist, who is constantly learning about the human mind and society, but also allows the psychologist to directly help other human beings and do a great service to society.
