Key Learning Outcomes: Students will endeavour to treat and diagnose emotional problems and personality disorders. Thus, undertake action to ensure methods of prevention and promotion of social inclusion. This good mastery in evaluation and diagnosis will allow patients to be effectively treated, as their illness is recognized at an early stage.
Occupational profiles of graduates with examples: Psychologists can work within a broad spectrum of sectors (public or private), and in facilities related to heath, education or social aid, such as :
- Investigation centres, hospitals, health centres, private practices, charitable institutions, social reinsertion centres, schools, or even a practice of their own (among others).

It is highlighted though, that prospective psychologists need at least a 2nd cycle level, thus being insufficient to have merely a Bachelor.
Examination regulations, assessment and grading: Each Course Unit has its own assessment methods, which include formal examinations, but also participation in classes, lectures, seminars, projects, tutorials, practical work, fieldwork, self-study or other assessment tools. Students are required to successfully complete all assessment activities with a minimum grade of 9.5 (on a scale of 1-20) in order to finalize the course units and obtain the corresponding ECTS Credits.
Graduation Requirements: Minimum Grade: 9.5 (0-20 scale)
Obtain all ECTS allocated to the course degree
Access to Further Studies: Graduates may pursue further studies at 2nd or 3rd Cycle level.
