About the Faculty of Psychology
The Faculty of Psychology, founded in 2011, is the only of its kind in Slovakia. It offers full university education in all 3 cycles – bachelor, master´s and PhD. Additionally, a professional doctorate (PhDr.) may be achieved in a special proceedings.
The faculty offers a combination of theory and practice, complemented by a profile of a European professional in psychologic standards, which may be certified by a professional diploma of a „European Psychologist Certificate“. The certification fullfils the needs of a standardised content of psychology studies throughout Europe.
Our mission is to react to current needs on the education market in psychology and that is why we aim at offering an expertise which reaches beyond the general and traditional education of psychology. The first aspect is guaranteed by new specialisations to be reached through our degree program, such as offering psychologic studies in Multicultural Tolerance. The second aspect demonstrates in a close interdisciplinarity and a strong interconnection of theoretical education with practice. Our partners from the sector of conduct of practical psychology enable our students to share their high class expertise in offering psychologic services on a daily basis. Among these, the Slovak National Centre for Human Rights, the League for Mental Health and professional corporations and chambers of psychologists and psychotherapists may be specifically mentioned. Experts are being invited into the direct tuition and specialised seminars, workshops and practical placements or other professional events are being offered in cooperation with our partners.
The team of academics of the Faculty of Psychology serve as psychologic practitioners themselves and share their expertise with students on a daily basis. Their demonstrable achievement is to educate and raise high quality professionals, who are not only knowledgeable, but committed to a challenging set of characteristics for a modern psychologist.
An interconnecting offer of parallel studies in the fields of expertise of other faculties of PEU, such as law, psychology, economics and informatics may be offered.
