Master’s degree in psychology with Interpersonal and Intercultural Specialization

This master’s degree in psychology is a general qualification, it is accepted for further professional training in all areas and opens up various jobs in psychology. During the master’s degree program, we place great emphasis on getting to know the role of a psychologist, developing professional competences and attitudes. Our Psychology MA is traditionally practice-oriented, and each student has close contact with the psychology workplaces and practitioners already during the studies. The English language MA offers a specialization in interpersonal and intercultural psychology. We provide a solid foundation for further studies in professional psychology (e.g., Counselling Psychology, Applied Health Psychology, Work and organizational Psychology, Sport Psychology in Hungary) and for PhD studies.

Specialisation in Interpersonal and Intercultural Psychology

Builds on the systemic approach of community psychology, focusing on positive functioning of the personality and using prevention as a main tool embedded into community processes. We offer theoretical training and practical experience in three areas: family processes, organizational development, and social inclusion. Our graduates are successful as psychology professionals in the social care system (e.g., as family support workers), in organizational development (e.g., as HR specialists, trainers), in the school-educational environment (e.g., educational counselling) and in dealing with social issues, in interdisciplinary cooperation with representatives of other disciplines.

Career options

Our students with a Master of Arts (MA) in Psychology degree can work as psychologists in the labour market, in the public sector and in the competitive sector. They are expected to work in institutions and organisations where education, training, development, management, selection, health promotion, re-education, correction, and rehabilitation are carried out (e.g., health care institutions, schools, business organisations, multinational companies, non-profit organisations, foundations, etc.). Graduates can enroll in doctoral programmes (PhD) in Hungary and in EU Member States, as well as in various postgraduate psychology courses (clinical psychology, occupational psychology, educational psychology, etc.).
