Interpersonal and Intercultural Psychology MA Specialization

Interculturalism has been playing an increasingly important role in the world of science, work and  everyday life. New social processes that partly result from migration, the increasing flow and mixing of people have given rise to a growing demand for intercultural knowledge. Realizing the role of culture is of fundamental importance in our understanding of the social world, therefore cultural sensitivity may be a profitable competence for experts working in different fields, and thus for psychologists as well.

In September 2017, the Institute for Intercultural Psychology and Education at ELTE University, Budapest, will launch a specialization program within the MA Program in Psychology with a focus on interpersonal and intercultural psychology. In addition to providing a theoretical basis of interculturalism, the program lays particular emphasis on applying theories to practice in different fields of psychology. By enabling students to manage diversity in a creative way, they will be prepared to make extensive use of their knowledge gained in the course of their training, either as researchers or practicing psychologists.

Programme director: Dr. Lan Anh Nguyen Luu associate professor, head of IIPE
