Psychology - The Program
Handbook valid until Batch 2019/Class of 2022! ➤ NEW PROGRAM: INTEGRATED SOCIAL AND COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY // BSc
The Jacobs BA in Psychology is built on a multi-level approach. Studying human behavior at the levels of the individual, the group and of the society and culture reflects the insight that individual behavior is constrained and shaped by factors that range from biological and psychological variables to socio-cultural contexts, such as, for instance, interpersonal, intergroup and even intercultural relationships. These factors interact in an intricate fashion in their effects on behavior. Our program focuses on equipping you with the skills to analyze, model, and eventually influence those multi-level interactions in ways that help individuals and groups attain positive outcomes, both performance-related (e.g., academic or job performance) and personal (e.g., subjective well-being, health behavior).
