Career opportunities after studying psychology

Studying psychology at the University of New York in Prague will help you understand other people and their emotions, but above all, it will help you understand yourself, and your actions and reactions in particular environments.

Understanding and learning about interpersonal connections and relationships can help you improve your own behavior with people – and therefore your social life overall. A science-based education in human psychology can even improve your networking skills! Once you understand how people communicate and interact, you can create stronger, more valuable connections with them.

However, there is so much more to psychology, whether you study it at the undergraduate or graduate level. UNYP’s Bachelor of Psychology program offers the unique opportunity to receive a dual degree – an American degree from the State University of New York, Empire State College and a European degree from UNYP, accredited in both countries. In addition to the undergraduate psychology program, UNYP has launched its own Master’s program in psychology accredited by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport. Our UNYP graduates are more than welcome to continue their studies at UNYP.
