Psychological Science

The Graduate School of Psychological Science – at the interface between the Faculty of Society and Humanities, the Faculty of Health and the Faculty of Sciences and in collaboration with the Institut Pasteur – brings together the training and research of Université Paris Cité in the various subfields of psychology.


Several topical issues – such as global warming, fake news, AI – need to be addressed by scientific psychology. In that sense, scientific psychology allows the study of the human factor, at the heart of each of these issues (in addition to its classical contribution to health and education). Furthermore, scientific and technological innovations are necessary, but for them to have a real impact, we must look at the habits of the population. Indeed, to meet these challenges, the objective is to understand how people adapt and change their behaviour, so that we can develop and promote a precise and effective scientific psychology, integrating all its sub-disciplines (ergonomics, neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, clinical psychology, psychology/economics, experimental psychology, developmental psychology, differential psychology, psychopathology, social psychology…).

The Graduate School of Psychological Science is one of the few training and research centres in France offering a wide range of training courses open to the different sub-disciplines and numerous professions in psychology. It is distinguished by its experimental, clinical and applied research in the fields of health, education and societal issues.

During the year, the Graduate School of Psychological Science participated in the International Days of the Institute of Cognitive Neurosciences (INC Days 2022) on Neuroethics as well as in the Hackathon 2022 initiated by the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering on the theme of digital health.




Most of the Graduate School’s Masters programmes allow access to the (protected) title of psychologist, on condition that the student first obtains a Bachelor’s degree in psychology and completes a minimum of 500 hours of professional training.

Please note! Some Masters do not give access to the title of psychologist, or only under certain conditions:

  • Basic and applied cognitive psychology (under certain conditions)
  • Psychology and economics
  • Cogmaster
  • Economics and psychology
  • Psychological ergonomics: safety, innovation, diversity

Finally, the Master’s degree in Artistic Creation does not prepare students for the profession of psychologist or psychotherapist.

Masters courses are taught in French (unless otherwise stated).
