Psychology

Develop your understanding of the relationships between the mind, brain, and behavior, and how these are both shaped by, and influence, social contexts. Although our Core Courses explore very different areas of psychology, they all critically examine psychological theory, research, and practice, with an emphasis on European perspectives and challenges.

Core Courses

Cyberpsychology
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course addresses the productive and problematic use and impact of digital technologies across the lifespan, exploring cognitive, emotional, or socio-cultural perspectives. Topics include: implications of being a digital native or digital immigrant, the effects of techno stress, social media and self-esteem, cyberbullying, and cybertherapy. Where relevant, cultural implications are explored from a Scandinavian perspective.


European Clinical Psychology
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course is a study of clinical psychology with a focus on the way we approach the field within a European context. The course covers the origins of European clinical psychology, cultural, and ethical issues, as well as different psychotherapeutic schools. The focus throughout the course is on adult mental health.


Positive Psychology
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course combines a study of theory, research, and application in the rapidly growing field of positive psychology. You critically examine the psychology of well-being with its possibilities and limitations, focusing on topics such as positive emotions, character strengths, flow, flourishing, mindfulness, creativity, and post-traumatic growth within the context of culture and history. Investigate how positive psychology complements other areas of psychology, therapy, coaching, and communication; and how it can be applied in real-world, professional settings such as business development and the clinical context. Through experiential learning and reflection, gain the necessary tools for developing sustainable happiness and increased life satisfaction.

Early in the semester, you delve into your academic focus during Core Course Week, in which you travel on a short Study Tour for three days in Denmark or a neighboring country, combined with a two-day seminar in Copenhagen. Later in the semester, you travel again with your Core Course on a week-long Study Tour in Europe.
 
While on tour, theories learned in the classroom come to life by meeting with professionals and experts in your field who contribute to furthering your understanding of course topics. Study Tours are hands-on and experiential, combining theory with practice, and expose you to additional cultural perspectives. You have the opportunity to visit sites and experts in your field of interest that you may not otherwise have access to.
