About the program

The Psychology concentration will develop students’ understanding of human behavior, how the mind works, how we perceive and understand experience, and how to achieve mental wellbeing.

Building on the general education and major courses found in the Humanities, Society and Culture (HSC) BA program, the Psychology Concentration provides a comprehensive introduction to psychological principles, methods, and techniques. The core areas of psychology–developmental, social, cognitive, moral, and evolutionary–are covered, along with the psychology of emotions and motivation, interpersonal relations, and the subconscious. 

The concentration will also enhance skills in critical reasoning, theoretical and empirical research, analysis, reflection, communication, cooperation, and problem solving, along with ethical awareness and the competencies essential for further study and training in the field of psychology.

The Psychology concentration consists of modules with required and optional courses that give students the freedom to explore what psychology is and what it means to them, while choosing courses that dovetail with their career and personal aspirations.

“What the humanities and social sciences do is open possibilities for you in multiple career paths. There is much talk about the use of a humanities degree nowadays. If you look at the surveys of employers worldwide and what they say they want from graduates, it is critical thinking and problem solving; it is being able to work with people in a team environment. These kinds of skills you get from a humanities degree. You are actively engaged, you are debating, and you are actively exercising those skills that employers say a graduate must have to engage in that field.”

Joshua M. Hayden, Lecturer, Chair of Dept. of Social Sciences

AAU’s Career Center also connects students with numerous professional internships in the Czech Republic and abroad every year.

Additional information

See what our students have to say

AAU has high-quality professors and a wide variety of classes to choose from. The courses that are offered at AAU are quite unique compared to the other universities in the Czech Republic and the student body is extremely diverse which has led me to meet people from all across the world.

Hunter Andrews
Humanities, Society and Culture, USA

AAU classes are small, usually up to 25 people, which I believe makes the interaction between international classmates more personal and diverse. It is a huge advantage as students to get an opportunity to speak up, to express our personal opinion as well as get a chance to practice our presentational skills.
