Special features regarding teaching

The Bachelor of Business Psychology at h_da is as a psychological course of study and therefore contains a comparatively high proportion of basic psychological and application subjects and empirical methods (both quantitative and qualitative). In addition to the classic Business Psychology specialisations in "Work, Organisation and Personnel" and "Market, consumer and Media", the innovative specialisations on "environment and sustainability" can also be selected. The combination of two specialisation subjects gives the students an individual profile.

Special features regarding the international orientation

The Business Psychology course cooperates in research and teaching with universities abroad, e.g. Norway, Sweden, England and Colombia. Professors teach at universities abroad and participate in international research initiatives. As part of these collaborations, students of Business Psychology also complete stays abroad, for example research internships and participation in specialist congresses.

Exchange universities for stay abroads

Purdue University, West Lafayette, USA; Soongsil University, Seoul, Südkorea; University of Wisconsin-Stout, Menomonie, USA.

Special features regarding the equipment

The course has: Computer laboratory: 36 PC workstations with SPSS and MaxQda; two experimental laboratories: 4 PC workstations each with SPSS and E-Prime for e.g. reaction time experiments, 2 virtual reality glasses; test library with over 80 different test procedures (many in multiple versions); collection of materials with a variety of instruments for examining organisational, team and work processes; age simulation suits; devices and software for conducting interviews (dictation machines / transcription software / foot pedals); Unipark license for online surveys.

Special features regarding research and development

Professors of the Business Psychology course are intensively involved in national and international, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research projects. They cooperate with companies, local governments, non-university research institutions and research institutions from other universities. They are members of the Darmstadt Institute for Business Psychology (DIWiP), the Centre for Research and Development (ZFE), the Research Centre for Sustainable Processes and Procedures (fz npv) and the Doctoral Centre for Sustainability Sciences at Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences.
