Global-MINDS Masters

Global-MINDS Masters

Applications are now being accepted for the new International 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. Applications can be made here and the closing date is 20 March 2017.

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: 

  1. Diversity & Inclusion (ISCTE-IUL, then UL)
  2. Global Mobility & Acculturation (ISCTE-IUL or SWPS, then UiO)
  3. 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.
