Global-MINDS is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree in Psychology of Global Mobility, Inclusion and Diversity in Society. It is a comprehensive 2- year programme, delivered in English, designed to provide high quality international training in scientific knowledge and practical skills in the field of social and cultural psychology. The program equips students with in-depth knowledge on themes relevant to the current social and business environment, including culture, organizations, diversity and inclusion as well as global mobility and cultural assimilation.
