Understanding with the ability to help others with a Master’s degree in Psychology

The University of New York in Prague is very proud to announce its first graduate degree that has been accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport (MŠMT). Students who attain the Czech master’s degree in psychology will have the right to use the title Mgr. All UNYP degree programs accredited by MŠMT will issue a diploma in the blockchain format as well as a traditional diploma.

A master’s degree in psychology is an essential foundation for professions in all fields of psychology, from clinical work to academic research. Students in the graduate psychology program at the University of New York in Prague will be thoroughly prepared at both theoretical and practical levels.

Is this UNYP master’s degree program right for me?    

This two-year program is based on specialized theoretical subjects (e.g., current topics of general psychology such as the psychology of personality and developmental psychology), which provide the foundation for related applied and clinical disciplines (e.g., clinical psychology and health psychology, school and educational psychology, personnel psychology). Supervised internships form an integral part of the UNYP master’s degree in psychology, as they provide graduates with practical experience for acquiring crucial knowledge and skills unavailable in books alone. The design and implementation of an original scientific research project and thesis prepares students for independent research expertise and forms an equally essential part of the program. Courses run primarily on the weekends in order to support students’ internship and potential work needs during the week.

"The best part of the program was that it required 700 hours of practical experience before being awarded the diploma. This gave me an advantage over graduates of other programs as i came into the field with hundreds of hours of experience which i believe was invaluable. Having completed my studies in English has also broadened mine professional opportunities."
