Department of Psychology and Logopedics

As its name suggests, the Department of Psychology and Logopedics houses two disciplines.

At the University of Helsinki, research operations in the discipline of psychology are focused on developmental psychology, health psychology and cognitive brain research. In addition, discipline-specific research is conducted also in perceptual psychology, cognitive psychology, the psychology of values and clinical neuropsychology. 

Research in the field of logopedics is centred on the development, disorders and rehabilitation of speech, language, voice and communication. 

Master’s degree graduates of both disciplines can apply for the right to practise as licensed health care professionals (psychologist/speech therapist) from Valvira, the National Supervisory Authority for Welfare and Health.
