2019 Erasmus Mundus Global-MINDS scholarship programme

Deadline: 20 January, 2019.

Global-MINDS is the European Master in the Psychology of Global Mobility, Inclusion and Diversity in Society funded by the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree funding programme (Erasmus+ – Key Action 1). It is a comprehensive 2- year study programme with 120 ECTS focusing on insights into contemporary social and societal issues from Social and Cultural Psychology.

Global-MINDS is an English-language master degree program for students with a Psychology Bachelor degree or equivalent. It is a unique study program with an internationalization component that is indispensable. It is aimed at students with a Bachelor (or similar) degree in psychology. This ensures that the program complies with international legal requirements regarding the registration and use of the title ´psychologist´, therefore, significantly improving the employability of psychology graduates.

The program is designed to deliver high quality international training in scientific knowledge and practical skills in social and cultural psychology. The Master courses provide students the opportunity to acquire in-depth theoretical knowledge on themes of extreme social  relevance, including diversity and inclusion, global mobility and acculturation, and culture and organisations. Students also consolidate and apply this knowledge by gaining first-hand intercultural experience by attending at least two Partner Universities, through the required structured student mobility, a structured internship, and writing a research-based thesis. These characteristics render this master program in Social and Cultural Psychology unique world-wide.

The 2-year program consists of two semesters of full time course work in the first year, at two different universities. This is followed, in the second year, by a semester internship with an organisation or company organised in association with the partner university of the student’s choice, and a final semester for completing and defending the thesis. During the last semester, again, the student can choose their location, but they must be available to meet with their chosen thesis supervisor regularly face-to-face during this time.
