Welcome! Willkommen! Welkom! Bienvenue! Bienvenido! Benvenuto!
Dear Erasmus or exchange students,
thank you for your interest in Work, Industrial, & Organizational Psychology at the University of Würzburg!
If you plan to attend courses in Work, Industrial, & Organizational Psychology, please note the following general information:
- All our courses are only suitable for Psychology Majors. If you are enrolled in a different study program at your home university, you cannot be admitted to our courses.
- Which courses are available in English language?
While most courses are held in German language, there are many courses in English language. Moreover, there are courses in German language, where you can contribute in English. In SB@Home (the course catalogue & self service portal of the university), please have a look at the category "International Student Programme".
- In the Bachelor program, we offer a two-term long lecture on the introduction to work & organizational psychology (given in German). In the fall term, topics of the lecture range from personnel to organizational psychology (e.g., personnel selection, human resource development, leadership), and in the spring term, work psychology is focused on (e.g., the meaning of work job design, work motivation, job satisfaction). The course is graded with an exam about the content of both terms. You can take the exam each term.
Furthermore, different courses on different subjects are offered each term in the Bachelor program in smaller groups (approximately 25 persons). Due to the large amount of students, places for these courses are regularly assigned based on a lottery. Please note, therefore, the deadlines to pre-register for a course in SB@Home for the corresponding courses.
- If you already obtained a Bachelor in Psychology at another university, you are also eligible to follow our courses given in the Master program. We offer different courses in the Major / Minor called "Work, Cognition, and Social Psychology". Courses vary each term, so please check the current SB@Home information for the courses given in the term you are planning to study in Würzburg.
- In addition, the individual docent for the course can specify additional requirements for attending specific courses in terms of prior knowledge. To be sure that the class is suitable for you, please contact the corresponding docent for this course directly. You can find his / her name also in SB@Home.
