This new 2-year Master’s degree programme focuses on how a basic and advanced knowledge in psychological sciences can be fruitfully applied to address relevant needs and tackle diverse issues in a range of contexts and domains. The goal of the programme is to teach cutting-edge perspectives on the cognitive, social, emotional, and neural processes underlying human thought, behaviour, language, knowledge, and decision-making. AEPS graduates will acquire advanced general knowledge, strong transferrable methodological research skills, and a specific focus of application of these skills, combining flexibility (e.g., the methodological research skills can be applied to a wide range of issues) and specificity (e.g., they are applied to a specific issue during the course of the degree). This expertise will open a range of possible career paths both in the private and in the public sector, including the national and international academic domain.
The Master in Applied Experimental Psychological Sciences (AEPS) cuts across different psychological domains and is specifically focused on learning and devising psychological interventions applying sound psychological principles across specific domains and it offers a professional profile in behavioral and psychological science applied expert, in line with recent worldwide developments of the psychological profession.
