Our Applied Social Psychology program is a good choice for people interested in social psychological theory and its application in real life situations, who are willing to benefit from the interdisciplinary approach, typical for this field. Students are introduced to the principles of applied social psychology and throughout the course of their studies they become familiar with such topics as social neuroscience, dynamical social psychology, or industrial and organizational psychology. They learn how to conduct research, including applied research, and to design interventions in order to implement change within individuals and organizations, all with an emphasis on cross-cultural sensitivities. Selected courses are based on the latest research in the field of social-neurobiology. Students also learn how technology may be used to improve the quality of life of individuals.
