Psychology: Social and Organisational Psychology
The professional master programme offers extensive professional skills training and a supervised internship to prepare them for a career as a professional psychologist. The masters programme in Social and Organisational Psychology has a core curriculum with a focus on the integration of social and organisational theory and practice. Building on this common body of knowledge students can focus on social or organisational issues by choosing specific topics for their course assignments, thesis and internship, and by selecting specific elective courses, depending on their interests and ambitions.
The objective of the programme is to equip students with advanced training in research methods and professional skills that prepare them both for a career involving psychological research as well as for the application of scientific knowledge and methods in various professional settings. Training is provided in all pertinent skills, including reviewing the relevant literature, applying theoretical knowledge to analyse practical problems, developing hypotheses and writing research proposals, designing and carrying out empirical studies, designing and evaluating the effectiveness of interventions, conducting advanced statistical analyses, and presenting results and recommendations.
