Students can strengthen their own professional profile. Students may also broaden their psychological knowledge or language skills.
To complement the core of the study programme in a meaningful way, students can take Master modules and courses from the fields
• Computer Science
• related fields
• Psychology (additional elective module (NOT psy170, psy220, psy270, psy280, psy290) or from another study programme)
Students whose first language is not German, may take German classes.
Upon approval, German-speaking students can attend a career-relevant language course (i.e. necessary for internship, practical project or Master's thesis).
Students can take the academic writing course ‘English for University Studies: 5. Writing and Reading pb337’ from the language center. Other English classes cannot be taken as Minor.

In cases of doubt, the programme coordinator can advise you.
Bachelor level courses are NOT acceptable. Note that Bachelor level courses can be listed in some Master programmes (e.g. Master of Education). This does not qualify a Bachelor level course for the Minor module.
