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 all the major areas of psychology and our research groups are divided into six research divisions. In 2020 we have merged 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 over 250 members of staff.

Mainly online-teaching

Stockholm University follows the recommendations of the Public Health Agency. Teaching will mainly be conducted online (with some exceptions). You can stay up-to-date by checking our website where you will also find the course schedule, as well as the student platform Athena. These arrangements are subject to change with short notice should new guidelines be published by the government.
