The BSc in Integrated Social and Cognitive Psychology at Jacobs opens doors for a professional career and lays the groundwork for an academic career, especially in an international context. You will be a strong candidate for junior positions in all jobs that require skills in analyzing, designing, or improving human interaction, presentation, and communication. Therefore, your career opportunities will be in fields such as advertising, counseling, diversity management health promotion, human resource management, intercultural relations, management consulting, market research, media, as well as applied research in companies, public institutions, and non-governmental organizations.
Moreover, you will be well prepared for international specialized Master programs in psychology and its neighboring fields, as well as for integrated, research-focused Master-PhD Programs.
Requirements to practice in psychology differ by country, and often even by state. Please check the requirements of the respective country or state. A degree in ISCP qualifies for entry into many accredited M.Sc. programs in the U.S., the UK and other countries that in turn are requirements for licensure in those countries. For details, please check the respective university webpages. Given its interdisciplinary focus, a degree in ISCP does not guarantee admission to general Master programs in Psychology or Psychotherapy at German universities and hence does not prepare for licensure as a Psychotherapist in Germany. For more information, please see the website of the German Society of Psychology DGPs (in German only).
