Educational goals

The Ph.D. program aims to provide advanced research training in the different fields of social, developmental psychology, and educational research, with two curricula. A) CURRICULUM ON SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY This doctoral program is intended to provide advanced research training. After this program, students are expected to be able to conduct autonomous research activity in several social psychology domains (e.g. processes and contents of social cognition, attitudes and their change, interpersonal relationships, group processes and social influence, social communication, prejudice, intergroup relations and social identity) and concerning different areas and contexts such as the health, the political, the economic, the intercultural and the organizational ones. Furthermore, this doctoral program aims to provide advanced research training for operating in different areas of Environmental Psychology, with the aim of ( a) understanding psychological processes that occur between people and daily life environments, with particular attention to their physical and technological features ( environmental perceptions and attitudes, environmentally relevant or ''ecological'' behaviours, place attachment and identity, environmental satisfaction, pro-environmental intentions, participation and commitment, etc.) and (b) collaborating with other disciplinary and technical fields in charge of designing and managing these environments. B) DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY AND EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH This doctoral program provides research expertise in educational settings and developmental psychology. With regard to educational research, the goal is to carry out research projects related to education (vocational training and apprenticeships), teachers training, educational policies. With regard to research in the field of developmental psychology, the goal is to provide advanced knowledge of the methods and techniques of research in developmental psychology. Students will learn the ability to plan, define and develop research in the study of different biological, social, and cultural aspects related to the development of children and adolescents, with special attention to the development of social skills, cognitive and emotional. Furthermore, the doctoral program provides a specialized training within an innovative and interdisciplinary perspective that refers to a cultural, post-modern, socio-constructionist psychology. Psychological processes are abundant products of social and discursive interaction among participants in specific socio-cultural systems of everyday activity (teachers' families, workplaces, educational settings).
