New European master programme in Social and Cultural Psychology
The new European Master in the Psychology of Global Mobility, Inclusion and Diversity in Society (Global-MINDS), funded by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme from the European Union call for applications for the 2017/2018 academic year is open until 20 March 2017 at http://global-minds.eu/.
Global-MINDS is a comprehensive 2- year study programme focusing on insights from Social and Cultural Psychology and applying them to contemporary societal issues. Students receive a thorough education in social and cultural psychological theory, research and methods, as well as training in intercultural skills – assets that are indispensable in today´s global knowledge economy and multicultural working environments.
The programme includes an internationalization component that is indispensable for such a master. Universities from five countries jointly deliver the Global-MINDS programme in English:
• ISCTE – Lisbon University Institute (ISCTE-IUL), Lisbon, Portugal
• University of Oslo (UiO), Oslo, Norway
• University of Social Sciences and Humanities (SWPS), Warsaw, Poland
• Koç University (KU), Istanbul, Turkey
• University of Limerick (UL), Limerick, Ireland
Global-MINDS students opt for one of three mobility paths for their first year of study, during which most of the course work is completed. Each mobility path focuses on a specific societal issue and provides students with diverse cultural experiences and educational contents:
A. Diversity & Inclusion (ISCTE-IUL, then UL)
B. Global Mobility & Acculturation (ISCTE-IUL or SWPS, then UiO)
C. Culture & Organizations (SWPS, then KU)
Students may opt for an additional mobility in their second year to complete their internship and master thesis.
The Global-MINDS Master is open to students from all over the world who have (or will have by September, 2017) a Bachelor (or equivalent) degree in psychology and excellent English skills. Global-MINDS has received funding from the European Union (Erasmus+ - Key Action 1) to award some generous scholarships to students from any country worldwide, covering travel and living expenses. Some scholarships are earmarked for students from specific countries: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Brazil, Cambodia, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Laos, Lebanon, Libya, Mexico, Morocco, Myanmar, Nepal, Palestine, South Africa, Syria, and Tunisia.
We will also hire scholars from Social and Cultural Psychology for short-term teaching assignments to add value to our program.
