Faculty 06 - Psychology and Sports Science
The Department of Psychology and Sports at the University of Giessen represents two scientific fields merged to form one faculty. Both have more in common than might be expected at first glance. This common ground is largely based on the psychological aspects of Sports Science and even more on the fact that sports science is quite empirically-experimentally oriented.
Approx. 850 students are currently enrolled at faculty 06 to major in psychology. There are 15 professorships in this department and three assistant professorships. This covers the entire range of scientific psychology in research and teaching.
At faculty 06, approx. 800 students are currently pursuing teaching certification in sports science and an additional 300 students are studying the bachelors/ masters degree programm. There are 5 professorships and one juniorprofessorship. A restructured, modularized study course for the teaching profession makes the study course of sports science particularly attractive.
