I/O psychologists are versatile behavioral scientists specializing in human behavior in the workplace.
I/O psychologists recognize the interdependence of individuals, organizations, and society, and they recognize the impact of factors such as increasing government influences, growing consumer awareness, skill shortages, and the changing nature of the workforce.
The main focus of the course will be to provide an insight into the research and theory development to date and to familiarise students with the practical and multidisciplinary nature of the field.
By the end of the course students should have an advanced understanding of the nature and scope of some of the principal theoretical and methodological developments in this area of research and an understanding of the application of psychological theory and concepts to an important area of everyday life.
Module overview The final year option in environmental psychology will introduce students to some of the key questions which currently guide research and practice in environmental psychology.
The distinctive feature of the programme at Leiden is that the teaching is not restricted only to the theory of research.
Within a scientist-practitioner model, these insights are always connected to their behavioural consequences and intervention issues.
The curriculum of the one-year Master’s specialisation in Methodology and Statistics in Psychology focuses both on in-depth study of theory and on the acquisition of professional and research skills.
The structure of the Leiden program invites and encourages you to independently engage with the theory, be critical about what you are taught, and actively apply this theory to both everyday practical situations and structured research settings.
