Program Description

⚡️ Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

We have temporarily adopted our programs for virtual instruction so that our new students have an option to begin their program in Summer or Fall 2020 virtually, and then change to on-campus learning, once the Czech Republic re-opens its borders.

Is this UNYP master’s degree program right for me?

This two-year program is based on specialized theoretical subjects (e.g., current topics of general psychology such as the psychology of personality and developmental psychology), which provide the foundation for related applied and clinical disciplines (e.g., clinical psychology and health psychology, school and educational psychology, personnel psychology). Supervised internships form an integral part of the UNYP master’s degree in psychology, as they provide graduates with practical experience for acquiring crucial knowledge and skills unavailable in books alone. The design and implementation of an original scientific research project and thesis prepare students for independent research expertise and forms an equally essential part of the program. Courses run primarily on the weekends in order to support students’ internship and potential work needs during the week.


Courses include:

  • Clinical and health psychology
  • Social psychology
  • Psychology of personality
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Psychology of work and organization
  • Developmental psychology
  • Educational psychology
  • Cultural anthropology
  • Research methods in psychology
  • Advanced statistical analysis
  • Introduction to psychological counseling and psychotherapy
  • Psychological professions in health care and social sphere in the CZ and the EU
  • Theory of psychodiagnostics
  • Psychopathology
  • Child clinical psychology and psychodiagnostics
  • Psychodiagnostics of adults
  • Ethics in psychology
