The Degree Programme in Studies in Psychological Sciences and Techniques, born from the collaboration between the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and the University of Parma, aims to provide the basic knowledge and skills of psychology and related areas that are useful for understanding the behaviour of individuals, groups and social organisations. To encourage the participation of the entire student population (students working, away from home and with disabilities) the programme teaching is provided through the blended mode. This mode provides for the combination of remote teaching activities provided on the Internet and traditional lectures in the classroom.

Programme contents

Traditional lectures will be provided in Reggio Emilia on the first semester, and in Parma on the second semester of each year. The training programme is divided into main study, research, and intervention fields envisaged in psychology; more specifically, they regard: general and experimental psychology, social and labour psychology, development and education psychology, clinic, dynamic, and health psychology. These are integrated with the learning of interdisciplinary knowledge, within the fields of neurosciences, statistics, criminology, sociology, and law. The basic theoretical training is combined with an overall 200-hour job- oriented pre-degree internship, carried out in a direct relationship with expert psychologists, in Universities or in the world of work.
