Global-MINDS mobility paths, focusing on societal issues, ensure that students experience the highest level of diversity in regard to cultural, socioeconomic, academic conditions and educational contents. Elective courses offered at each Partner Institution in Psychology and other disciplines (e.g., political science) provide students the possibility to deepen a thematic interest and/or obtain an interdisciplinary perspective.
The mobility paths have been carefully designed so that in the their first year, students to receive a strong foundation in social psychological topics (e.g., prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination) and numerous cultural psychological issues such as cultural diversity and acculturation as well as experiencing cultures that differ in history and norms.
The paths differ in thematic focus in the second semester courses (Inclusion & Health, Mobility & Society), allowing students to explore more specific topics according to their interests. Students will also receive a solid training in psychological qualitative and quantitative methods and data analysis throughout the first year of the programme, in preparation for their empirical Master thesis project.
The compulsory Global-MINDS Summer School offers additional knowledge and skills development regarding cross-cultural methods and intervention, which are not covered by the Partner Institutions.
