Undergraduate study program Psychology

The Croatian Ministry of Science and Education has approved the new undergraduate study program Psychology and the first generation of students started their study in October 2021.

The program lasts three years, the classes are entirely in English, and graduates will obtain 180 ECTS and the title University Baccalaureus of Psychology (univ. bacc. psych.). Students will learn about the different psychological disciplines and theoretical orientations, acquire research methodology skills, and obtain a basic knowledge of scientific disciplines that intersect with psychology (e.g., philosophy, anthropology, sociology).

The study program is in full accordance with the requirements of EuroPsy, a European Standard of education and professional training in psychology set by the European Federation of Psychologists’ Associations. Therefore, the students who complete the program may continue their studies on any psychology master program in the EU.

The annual tuition fee is 6000 Euro, and the enrolment quota is 34 students. Two additional places without tuition are reserved for Croatian students of lower socioeconomic status (for details about requirements, the admissions process, and scholarship selection process, see here).

Classes will be held at the University of Split, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and other parts of the University such as the School of Medicine. The program will be taught by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences staff and collaborating teachers from other Croatian and international universities. The mentoring system will provide each student with a mentor-teacher who will advise the student regarding the study or specific academic interests. According to the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences regulations, students may also spend one or more semesters at one of the European Universities.

Undergraduate Psychology student Marta Penava had the opportunity to represent our Department at the 6 th Regional Meeting of Psychology Students in Rijeka, which took place during the period of 4 th till 6 th of May 2023. She was the youngest active participant of the conference who presented her review titled “The Influence of Music on the Mood”. After the presentation, which was accepted positively, a discussion followed. In future we hope to have more student presentations.
Last Friday, we had a visit from our colleagues from Helsinki, from the Social Psychology program at the Faculty of Political Sciences. In the afternoon, both groups of students attended a series of lectures and workshops about social influence. Many thanks to our students: Mariia Shmatkova and Bruno Kačer, for helping in the preparation of materials and presentation. We are looking forward to more similar visits in the future and sharing experiences.
