Faculty of Behavioural Sciences and Psychology

The University of Lucerne’s newest faculty is currently being established.

The Bachelor's programme in psychology will start in autumn 2024, and the Master's programme in psychology in 2027. Three specialisations are planned for the Master’s programme, all of which perfectly complement the existing range of courses throughout Switzerland and for which there is a proven need: health and rehabilitation psychology, psychology and law, and child and adolescent psychology.

The process of finding the first three professors in the fields of child and adolescent psychology, clinical psychology and legal psychology is under way. The positions will probably be filled in summer 2024.

A research laboratory is currently being set up in the field of behavioural sciences.
