Through its academic courses, MA Programme in Applied Psychology provides students with both - theoretical knowledge as well practical skills. At lectures and seminars, together with theoretical materials, lecturers, who in their majority are leading specialists of the field, present and discuss practical issues and cases, most of which rely on their own practical work and/or research. Also, specially invited practitioners to share with students their experience. Particular focus is put on students’ active participation in the academic process – via presentations, discussions, debates, role-plays which, at the same time, contribute to the development of communication and team-work skills. Written assignments, given through the whole course in different forms of quizzes, open questions, reviews, projects, strengthen students’ knowledge base and academic writing skills. In culminating experiences, such as a thesis, students demonstrate synthesis of gained theoretical knowledge, research, and other practical skills. The programme curriculum and entire academic process prepare future master’s degree holders to effective work within the specialized domain.
