Towards a better understanding of the human mind and human behavior

In the psychology department, talented and internationally renowned scholars work in their own wayward manner to gain a better understanding of the human mind and human behavior. The critical UvA-student is educated by them during this quest, in which independent thinking is expected and nothing and no one is beyond critique.


The research is organized in six program groups, which are part of the Psychology Research Institute:

  • Brain and Cognition
  • Clinical Psychology
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Psychological Methods
  • Social Psychology
  • Work and Organizational Psychology


The University of Amsterdam offers various Bachelor's and Master's programmes in Psychology.
