About
the Global-MINDS program

Global-MINDS is a Joint Master's 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 adaptation.

During the course of study, students gain first-hand intercultural experience while studying in at least two Partner Universities, participating in an internship, and by writing a research-based M.A. thesis. Thanks to the international component, the breadth of topics, and the combination of theory and practice, the Global-MINDS program in Social and Cultural Psychology is unique among social sciences programs available around the world.
