This page provides important information on the master’s program in Psychology – Work, Economy and Society, such as the examination regulations, the module catalog, the degree plan, the minor, and the master’s thesis.
Please note: As the program is taught in German, the documents listed on this page are only available in German.
The examination regulations can be considered a program’s rulebook as they contain comprehensive information on your studies, including examination deadlines, the number of times you can re-sit an exam, registration for your master’s thesis, etc.
You can find the document on the central website of the University of Mannheim under Psychology. If you are aware of the examination regulations’ (in German) content, you can answer many questions yourself.
The module catalog provides you with detailed information on the individual modules and courses regarding their content and types of examination.
You may substitute your mandatory elective module with a minor.
Please ask the chair of the examination committee for approval of your minor by sending an informal request stating your program of study and the minor you would like to take (ideally via e-mail).
An eight-week (or 300 working hours) internship in the professional field of psychologists must be completed in the degree programme. Further information on the internship can be found on this website.
What should I know about the procedure?
