Students who do not have a bachelor’s degree in psychology, but have obtained a master’s degree in psychology or a degree in a closely related discipline to Cultural Psychology (e.g., Cultural Anthropology, Cultural Sociology) can still be admitted to the programme provided that they have acquired sufficient EC in psychology-related courses on top of the basic requirements.
Applicants are expected to have basic knowledge of Cultural Psychology when they enter the master’s programme. To ensure this, we expect applicants to have completed an introductory course in Cultural Psychology. This course should introduce you to the discipline of cultural psychology, the development of culture and discuss the major cultural differences in psychological functioning (e.g. self, social relations, emotion, motivation, cognition, perception).
