The School of Educational Sciences and Psychology offers degree programmes in the following disciplines: psychology, education, adult education, special education and counselling. In addition, we organise training that leads to the qualification of special education teachers, career counsellors and psychologists. Our school also offers minor subject studies in these disciplines and separate qualifying or specialisation studies to be completed after degree studies, such as the Certificate Programme for Special Education Teachers (Early Childhood Education and Care), the Certificate Programme for Special Education Teachers, Specialisation training for psychologists in health psychology, and Qualification Studies for Career Counsellors.
Our modern learning environments, seminars, groups and online environments enable flexibility in studying. In addition, most of the study programmes include periods of practical training or on-the-job learning.
Your choice of major subject affects your employment opportunities, which include schools, teaching, counselling and human resources management, as well as becoming a psychologist or trainer. Broad-based skills and competencies will guarantee access to a wide range of jobs.
In addition to our Doctoral programmes taught in English (see below), we also offer a variety of degree programmes taught in Finnish. To learn more about our degree programmes, please visit our Finnish-language website.
