Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives
This first cycle degree course provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of the foundations of the different areas of Psychology, and prepares the students to master the scientific investigation methods and their application to the specific field of Psychology.
Learning is focused on mechanisms of sensory and perceptual processing, on cognitive functions (attention, executive functions, learning and memory, thought and language, intelligence), and on emotional, motivational and personality aspects; it encompasses the way these processes and functions change during the life span or due to psychopathological or neuropathological conditions, their role in social and work interactions, and on the simulation of such processes and functions by means of neural networks. The notions about Psychology and cognitive science are tightly integrated with an in-depth study of the neural basis of behaviour.

Occupational opportunities
This course is primarily intended for providing the basic knowledge needed for continuing the studies with the second level of training offered by the second cycle degree programs in Psychology (Corso di Laurea Magistrale).
However, this degree allows, after a post-graduate training and the subsequent registration to the Section B of the Professional order (and under the supervision of a psychologist with a second cycle degree), to work for organisations that help individuals, families, groups and communities, to carry out ventures aimed at promoting the welfare and the strengthening of individual and social resources; to realize and verify rehabilitative, psycho-educational and psycho-social interventions in several areas (e.g.: work, school or disability), also through the use of psychometric tests and other standardized tools used in Psychology.

Access modalities
This course provides an excellent foundation of knowledge (with a particular emphasis on methodological and statistical issues), ideal for accessing second cycle degree courses in Psychology, in particular those of the School of Psychology of the University of Padua, such as: Applied Cognitive Psychology; Clinical Psychology; Neuroscience and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation; Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Neuropsychology (the latter course is entirely held in English).
The admission to the MD courses takes place according to the procedures that are indicated in the specific calls.
