About us

The Department of Psychology is a part of the Faculty for Social Sciences and is one of the largest departments at Stockholm University. Research is conducted in a variety of different areas and our research groups are divided into six research divisions. In 2020 we will merge with the Stress Research Institute to further strengthen our research. Our courses span all levels from undergraduate to PhD and include a psychologist programme, a psychotherapist programme and more. We have a psychotherapy clinic with two disciplines of psychotherapy. The department comprises more than 200 members of staff.
