Studying psychology opens up a wide range of professional opportunities. Working as a psychologist is possible in many professional fields, depending on the specialisation. In order to facilitate orientation, a selection of professional fields will be presented at this event. Psychologists from each SFU branch will present their fields of work and provide an insight into their everyday work. There will be first-hand information as well as space for exchange and questions. Language of presentation will be English.

There are ten dates in total, each Tuesday from 6 pm – 7.30 pm online via Zoom. The overall course can be credited as an „additional course“ (1 ECTS). The events of the lecture series can also be attended individually without obtaining a certificate. SFU students can register via Academy 5
