Welcome to the Department of Psychology at the Philipps-Universität Marburg!
The Department of Psychology (“Fachbereich 04”) features a broad spectrum of research areas and activities. With approximately 1000 actively enrolled students, the Department of Psychology in Marburg is one of the largest in Germany and its professors and research labs investigate a diverse range of psychological questions. This enables us to offer a wide variety of courses in both basic and applied psychology, which in turn means many options for you.
The Department of Psychology in Marburg is regularly ranked among the top German psychology programs both in teaching and research. Our degree programs have an especially strong empirical-scientific focus and we encourage and expect active participation by all our students.
Through the ERASMUS and other international exchange programs, the Department of Psychology promotes an international exchange of students and scientists from all over the world. Our aim is for you to not only feel welcomed but fully involved in our department and the department's teaching and learning program throughout your stay with us. Central to this is our Buddy Program that lets you interact with local students, learn more about each other’s home countries, and their different cultural and academic customs. Furthermore it is an opportunity to learn about the city of Marburg, the University and talk about its expectations of you, your expectations of us and much more.
Key information for a successful start in our department is available in our Study Guide, which you can download below.
There, you will also find information on how to register for courses at the Psychology department as well as which of the current courses are taught in English.
