This Positive Organisational Psychology specialisation is offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam.
The Psychology curriculum consists of a series of modules or courses. Every course covers one specific psychological theme. All of the activities that you will undertake during this course, i.e. lectures, tutorials, practical meetings and assignments, are related to this theme. The Master’s programme consists of three courses in which you will study the topics of the specialisation of Positive Organisational Psychology and one course in statistics.
In the second semester, from February onwards, you will conduct an empirical study and write your Master‘s thesis. In addition, in some cases it is possible to do an internship during the semester of the Master’s programme.
