Faculty of Psychology (UFR de psychologie)

The courses offered by Paris 8 University’s Faculty of Psychology cover all areas of psychology. The courses offer a theoretical and practical education over five years, at the end of which students receive the title of “Psychologist”.

Our multi-disciplinary psychology course presents students with a broad panorama of contemporary approaches in psychology, incorporating reflective, critical, and ethical dimensions essential for comprehensive and quality practice.
