Why choose this programme?

The master's degree in Psychology provides you with advanced psychological knowledge. You will also gain practical experience through projects and lab work. The programme offers different specializations. Please note that the programme option in Cognitive Neuroscience is the only one that is taught entirely in English.

The programme options are:

Cognitive Neuroscience

Arbeids- og organisasjonspsykologi

Helse, utvikling og samfunn


INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS: Only the Cognitive Neuroscience programme is taught in English and welcomes international applicants as well as Norwegian/Nordic applicants. The other four disciplines require proficiency in Norwegian (Bergenstest or equivalent).

Please note that the Master of Philosophy in Psychology is a theoretically oriented education of two years which does not give you an authorization to practice as a clinical psychologist in Norway. To become a clinical psychologist you have to apply for the profession oriented degree programme (6 years education) which is taught only in Norwegian (Bergenstest is needed).
