Core Courses

Cyberpsychology
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course addresses the productive and problematic use and impact of digital technologies across the lifespan, exploring cognitive, emotional, or socio-cultural perspectives. Topics include: implications of being a digital native or digital immigrant, the effects of techno stress, social media and self-esteem, cyberbullying, and cybertherapy. Where relevant, cultural implications are explored from a Scandinavian perspective.


European Clinical Psychology
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course is a study of clinical psychology with a focus on the way we approach the field within a European context. The course covers the origins of European clinical psychology, cultural, and ethical issues, as well as different psychotherapeutic schools. The focus throughout the course is on adult mental health.


Positive Psychology
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits

This course combines a study of theory, research, and application in the rapidly growing field of positive psychology. You critically examine the psychology of well-being with its possibilities and limitations, focusing on topics such as positive emotions, character strengths, flow, flourishing, mindfulness, creativity, and post-traumatic growth within the context of culture and history. Investigate how positive psychology complements other areas of psychology, therapy, coaching, and communication; and how it can be applied in real-world, professional settings such as business development and the clinical context. Through experiential learning and reflection, gain the necessary tools for developing sustainable happiness and increased life satisfaction.
