Why you should study Health Psychology 

A degree brings with it various advantages that can help you in the course of your career. You develop soft skills and abilities such as scientific work, which are important for your professional development and which you could not acquire in an apprenticeship. You can only reach certain positions and thus salary levels with an academic degree. Lifelong learning is also becoming increasingly important for our society and a Bachelor's or Master's degree simply ensures you better career and promotion opportunities and a successful future.  

Your IU Studies in Health Psychology 

The content of our Health Psychology programme is based on the recommendations of the Central Prevention Testing Centre. In addition to anatomical-medical and social-health basics, you will also be taught interdisciplinary knowledge. Psychological-diagnostic skills for the prevention and management of stress, addiction and immunological diseases are also a focus of the content. And if you want to go even deeper, you can specialise at the IU. For example, in the areas of health and coaching, m-health and health management.
