Why OBAC?

OBAC at University of Heidelberg invites students who have a thirst for knowledge and share with us the vision of bringing scientific expertise to the field and putting it into practice in organizations. Two years of scientific training as well as hands-on practice immersed in real-world challenges will back up your personal and professional transformation. We prepare you for challenges in any functional area in the 21st century - wherever psychologists are needed, anywhere in the world.

 

The Department of Psychology at Heidelberg University looks back at a strong research tradition. Few, if any, Psychology departments throughout Germany welcome as diverse a community of colleagues and faculty, reflecting a world of talents, backgrounds, and expertise. Striving for excellence ourselves, we expect from your, and offer to you, nothing more and nothing less than being among the best.

 

To experience OBAC is to go inside the issues and controversies that matter and to develop your skills, to encounter your creativity, and to extend your flexibility. Your confidence in your performance to apply psychological wisdom will develop as you study, write, present, and practice. In every activity, event, and case study, you are asked not only to elaborate and recall, but to demonstrate your capacity to transfer knowledge to related scientific areas and applied fields.

Looking back at former students, we confidently answer: "definitely yes". We invite you to ask a broader question instead: "What difference will you make in the world of tomorrow?"
