Psychological Citizenship Project (PSY3390)

                                                                                                                                     << previous option       next option >>  


This module will invite you to become more psychologically literate, to be able to apply psychological science to complex professional and societal problems. In doing so, students will gather relevant insights from one or more applied psychological disciplines such as work and organizational psychology, educational psychology, health and clinical psychology, legal psychology, applied cognitive neuroscience.

Students will work in small teams together with stakeholders outside academia (e.g., businesses, NGOs) on authentic, locally meaningful problems. You will be matched with a stakeholder at the start of the project. Individually, you will be challenged to grow a (social) entrepreneurial mindset by imagining how you could creatively put your psychological competences to use in your field of interest after graduation.
