About Global-MINDS

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

Education Paths

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:

A. Diversity & Inclusion (ISCTE-IUL, then UL)

B. Global Mobility & Acculturation (ISCTE-IUL or SWPS, then UiO)

C. Culture & Organizations (SWPS, then KU)

(Students may opt for an additional mobility in their second year to complete their internship and master thesis.)

Each of the program institutions is expert in their respective part of the Global-MINDS educational programme. Graduates will be awarded a joint master degree. A group of world-leading scholars from different countries also contributes to the delivery and quality assurance of the programme. An international network of associate partners – private companies, civil society organisations, public service providers, practitioners, policy makers, governmental organisations and NGOs – assures high quality student internships and assistance in graduates’ employment.
