Program Overview

Program Description:
Kazimierz Wielki University is one of the youngest wide-profile university in our country. It came into existence on September 1, 2005. However the history of the University dates back to 1969 when the Teachers' Training College was founded. Nowadays Kazimierz Wielki University in Bydgoszcz is a dynamically developing institution of higher education, the largest in the city and the second largest in the region in terms of number of professors, students, graduates and the number of degree courses.

The program of 5 years studies has a three-track structure, one offering a specialization in Clinical Psychology, another in Applied Social Psychology, and the third in Developmental Support. The major aim of our specializations is to provide students with a theoretical background for research in chosen ones and to provide students with skills relevant to work in different areas of psychology. Particular emphasis is placed on the interplay between theory and practice. Master of Arts degrees provide training for entry level careers in mental health, schools and private industry. Today it is possible to get a license to practice in certain fields of applied psychology. The Master of Arts in Psychology program can serve as your gateway into the human services field or as the first step into a doctorate program. You may gain a theoretical and practical understanding of the principles of psychology within the framework of a strong clinical emphasis. Courses present various aspects of the art and science of psychology as it is applied to the understanding of human behavior.

Teaching is conducted in the form of lectures, exercises, laboratories and seminars, with an emphasis on practical applications of knowledge (which is particularly important from the point of view of students’ future career). We use contemporary training aids to enhance the teaching process; the aids include, among others, multimedia presentations and computer simulations. Appropriate conditions for learning as well as individual contact of teachers with each student is provided by the small number of students in teaching groups—laboratory groups do not exceed 15 people, seminar groups—10 people. Organization of education process combined with relatively small number of students provide a friendly atmosphere in the classroom and builds a good relationship between students and lecturers. This in turn allows us to accomplish our teaching philosophy, that aims at encouraging students to join in carrying out the high-quality research. This is achieved through students' participation in specialized student laboratories and in student research groups, as well as through individual contact with the staff of Institute of Psychology.
Setting Description:
Bydgoszcz is the capital of the Kujawsko-Pomorskie province, situated in central Poland, by two rivers - Brda and Vistula. The history of the city reaches back to the 14th century, when King Casimir the Great gave the city its foundation privileges. Today Bydgoszcz, with its population of nearly 360 thousand people, is an industrial, commercial, cultural, educational and sport centre of the province. One of its strongest points is also the fact that it is an important road and railway junction. The modern international airport with regular connections to Warsaw, London, Dublin and Barcelona has been in operation since early 2004. In Bydgoszcz there are seats of many international concerns that deal with the electrotechnical industry, telecommunications and banking, such as Alcatel - Lucent, Tyco Electronics, Atos Origin, Jabil, and JP Morgan Chase. The city also houses NATO Joint Force Training Centre.
