WISP is a five-year unified master program in Psychology
Unified means that it does not have a separate bachelor phase, but that after five years a master’s degree is awarded. In terms of structure, the program of studies is comparable to a Bachelor + Master however. The first three years are devoted to covering the basis of the different fields within psychology, the last two years are devoted to specialization in one specific area within psychology.
During years 1-3 a number of obligatory courses cover all major fields in psychology and focus on certain skills any psychologist should possess. In addition there is ample opportunity to choose elective course on topics of students own interest.
In years 4 and 5 students complete a specialization of their choice. The current specializations that are being offered are:
- Clinical Psychology – track Neuropsychology
- Clinical Psychology – track Psychotherapy
- Business Psychology
- Social Research Specialization
Also in these final years there is still plenty of opportunity to complete elective courses or courses of a different specializations

These credits need to be gathered by passing all obligatory courses in a given year, complemented with credits obtained from elective courses. A minimum of 300 credits must be earned during the 5-year course of study.
