USING KNOWLEDGE OF PSYCHOLOGY TO IMPROVE DAILY LIFE
With the Master’s programme Applied Cognitive Psychology, you will apply modern knowledge of cognition and behaviour to situations and solutions to problems that occur in daily life. You will apply knowledge of human cognitive, sensory and motor systems in real-life situations.
During this one-year programme, you will learn about human information processing. That knowledge is useful for making signage or advertising more effective, for example, or for making products more user-friendly.
You will also learn to come up with solutions for a wide range of problems that can occur in professional practice. Humans are dramatically changing their environment using increasingly complex technology, such as the Internet, social media, robotics and automation. In order to design an environment that is well suited to human cognitive abilities, one should understand human perception, understanding and reasoning.
