Social and Occupational Psychology


We specialize in applied psychology, that is, psychology focused on practical problem solving. Most of our graduates work in areas such as HR, human resources, marketing or management. However, many also work in research or other areas. All of us who lecture here also have other activities and try to put students in touch with practice. We invite practitioners to our classes and send students to practice where they can learn something. Our approach has been successful: recruiters from large companies repeatedly tell us that they prefer our graduates to graduates from other schools. They know that they have finished a course that really gave them something.
