    The Cultural Psychology Master’s programme has a strong international orientation. Our staff members have an extensive international network and cooperate with researchers across the world. You may make use of this network and follow a course or conduct research abroad (e.g., for your thesis or internship), for example at our partner university in Ghana.  

    In order to provide you with first-hand intercultural experiences, you have the opportunity to join the annual study trip organised by the student fraction and get to know a non-Western culture such as Ghana.
