Psychology: Cultural Psychology (track)


This Master's track combines approaches from cultural and cross-cultural psychology and deals with three central issues: How does culture shape our psychological functioning? What are the consequences of cultural similarities and/or differences for the individual, the group, and for intergroup relations? How can we design and evaluate interventions and programs that are culturally sensitive? Are you ambitious and have an interest in (cross-) cultural psychology? We invite you to apply for this selective, one-year programme.
