Psychological Institute

Prof. Dr. Daniel Süss

"We conduct application-oriented study programmes and research to foster the further development of society, organizations, teams, and individuals".

Prof. Dr Daniel Süss
Director, Psychological Institute

The Psychological Institute encompasses seven sections and the Centre for Education and focuses on four strategic priorities.

The Centre for Education

The Centre for Education at the Psychological Institute is responsible for organizing the bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes and is supported by the team in the Administration Office. It also provides study programme information and advising and handles admissions procedures and quality assurance of study programmes. In close cooperation with the seven sections of the Institute it continuously further develops the curricula and framework conditions of the bachelor and master’s study programmes.

We place a high value on sustainable and successful studies that provide a generalist orientation at the bachelor’s level and specialization, shaped in part by the students, at the master’s level.


Our seven sections work in close cooperation with other research units, including other specialist sections, the centre of the IAP Institute for Applied Psychology, other schools of the ZHAW, and universities.

With their know-how in teaching and research, the sections contribute towards solving individual and societal issues in the following areas:
