The Master’s Degree in Applied Experimental Psychological Sciences (AEPS) offered by the Department of Psychology at the University of Milano-Bicocca is a new innovative two-year study program that focuses on the application of advanced knowledge in psychological sciences to address relevant human needs and tackle diverse issues in a range of contexts and domains. The goal of the program is to teach cutting-edge perspectives on the cognitive, social, emotional, and neural processes underlying human thought, behavior, language, knowledge, and decision-making.
The program will help AEPS graduates acquire advanced theoretical and empirical knowledge, strong transferable methodological research skills, with a specific focus on application of these skills , combining flexibility (e.g., the methodological research skills can be applied to a wide range of contexts) and specificity (e.g., they are applied to a specific issue during the course).
The expertise gained through the program will open a range of career paths for our graduates to pursue careers both nationally and internationally, across academia as well as the private and public sector. The program also provides a foundation for undertaking doctoral studies.
