The Psychological Science programme at the University of Padova is designed to provide you with strong foundations in psychology. You will study subjects such as Brain and behaviour, Developmental psychology, Social psychology and communication, Clinical psychology and Foundations of health psychology. The course includes both compulsory and optional teachings and aims to lay the scientific basis for your future studies in the field and prepare you to work in a variety of sectors.
The theoretical learning will be integrated with practical work and experimental activities and so you will attend lectures and also work in study groups. Seminars and workshops will also be part of your educational training. Our aim is to encourage our students to take a critical approach to their studies and gain an international perspective.
Graduates in Psychological Science may find professional occupations in public or private bodies, in education and in enterprises and organisations of the third sector.
Under the supervision of a professional Psychologist they can work in services caring for the individual, groups, organisations and communities in promoting health. All these sectors are related to psychometric assessment, psychosocial assistance and development of human resources across the life span.
