Clinical Psychology

Formerly known as Psychopathology

Are you intrigued by the complexities of the wide range of mental disorders? Are you eager to develop the knowledge and research skills needed to understand how such disorders come about and to find new ways of treating and preventing them? Then Clinical Psychology is the right choice for you! This highly multidisciplinary programme provides you with the theoretical background and clinical insight necessary for research in the fields of experimental psychopathology, clinical psychology and psychiatry. Clinical Psychology is also an ideal choice for those who intend in the future to combine science and clinical practice.
