In General on PhD courses
The third-cycle education (doctoral) in psychology that ends in a doctoral degree includes a course block including 90 higher university credits (HE=hp), which must be divided into 30 hp devoted to methodology and 60 hp of courses pertaining to the subject.
The mandatory methodology courses as well as the subject courses (see below) are given with specific intervals, but deviations may occur. Other temporary courses may also be given by the department.
The selectable courses (reading courses, methodological courses and individual in-depth study courses) may be acquired either at the department or elsewhere (other universities etc.).
It is expected that the theoretical subject courses will be selected in consultation with the supervisor so that they encompass a wider theoretical span than the specific dissertation subject.
There are still yet no course plans for all courses. The description of the courses will successively be completed when the respective course will be given.
