Program Overview

Program Description:

Module 1:

Social Psychology (week 1 and 2)

Humans are social beings; hence, social psychology affects all of us. We constantly think, feel and act not only as individuals but also – and sometimes primarily – as members of social groupings. Social psychology studies human interaction – its forms, causes, consequences and psychological processes. In this course, we will study how human behavior and thinking is influenced by the actual or imagined presence of others. Students will get an overview of social psychological theories and will learn to apply these theories to everyday problems and situations. We will provide a full range overview of social psychology and we will discuss topics such as attribution processes, influence and obedience, attitudes and persuasion, prejudice, aggression and violence, intergroup behavior, prosocial behavior, social rituals as well as attraction and love. The course will comprise lectures, group work, self-assessments and exercises.

 

Module 2:

Organizational Behavior (week 3 and 4)

Organizations consist of the people who work within them. This course therefore attempts

to build the students’ understanding and skill in leading and managing people and organizations.

The objectives of this course are (1) to raise the student‘s awareness of the centrality

of organizational behavior to understanding organizational functioning and effectiveness;

(2) to show how an understanding of human behavior via the disciplinary basis of psychology

profoundly deepens our analysis of organizations, and (3) to demonstrate the core value

of an understanding of organizational behavior to a manager‘s ability to achieve organizational goals. We will provide an overview of organizational behavior and we will discuss topics such as perception and personality, motivation, leadership and decision making, groups and teams, organizational culture and change, and gender and diversity in organizations.The course will comprise lectures, group work, self-assessments and exercises.
