Unique Modules and Subjects

The undergraduate Psychology Program includes the following thematic areas: behavioral studies, conflict resolution and management, mind-communication-technology, and cross-cultural psychology.

Thematic Areas

Behavioral Studies

Behavioral Studies (also known as behavior analysis) focus on the comprehensive use of empirically validated principles of learning to develop, implement, and evaluate practical strategies that enhance the abilities and self-direction skills of children and adults in community, home, and educational settings.

Cross-Cultural Psychology

Cross-Cultural Psychology examines how cultural factors influence human behavior. Cultural psychologists study cultural diversity and apply solutions in environments, such as multicultural societies, multicultural schools and universities, and international business.

Conflict Resolution and Management

Conflict Resolution and Management are crucial to social interactions in families, communities, organizations and international relations. Conflict dynamics, if well managed, are an essential part of social change and foster adaptive social processes. The theory and practice of conflict resolution are based on models of conflict dynamics and are focused on processes of conflict management, such as negotiation, mediation and coaching techniques.

 

Mind-Communication-Technology

The Mind-Communication-Technology focuses on visual communication, which can be understood as transmission of information and ideas using symbols and imagery. The visual communication module aims to help students understand the process of visual perception along with psychological and cultural aspects of creating images and communicating by visual means. The eye-tracker module is the response to the growing popularity of eye-tracking methods, which allow us to measure and record the position and movement of the eye. Eye-tracking research helps to build communication systems for people with various disabilities and allows to improve the design of Internet web-pages and user-friendly computer programs.
