About Psychology, BA - at Webster Leiden Campus

The BA in Psychology that we offer at Webster is designed to build a strong foundation of understanding, interpreting, analyzing and applying the study of psychology in different contexts.

The study of psychology can be extremely useful for a variety of situations. Whether you plan to go in for higher studies and eventual research, or try your hand at a corporate career, an undergraduate degree in psychology always comes in handy. Here, the emphasis is not just on concepts and theories. We also ensure that students become well-versed in the practical aspects, by understanding and applying this delicate area of study to real life scenarios.

In this program, students get to develop a superior and more in-depth understanding of the complexities and diversity of human behavior and behavioral patterns. Students also get to learn about theories and concepts of psychology behind most of these behavioral elements. The program uses both scientific approach and philosophical approach towards understanding psychology. Both theoretical concepts, and experimental data are taken into account during the study. Students are also encouraged to develop and apply problem-solving aptitude, and clear communication, as an aid to expand their knowledge horizons.
