Program Description:
Psychology 
From crime, to well-being, to our relationship with food, psychology explores diverse aspects of the human condition. 

While our three Core Courses approach very different areas of psychology, all will critically examine psychological theory, research, and practice with an emphasis on Swedish and European perspectives.

Positive Psychology 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
Through theory, research, and application, examine the psychology of well-being with its possibilities and limitations, focusing on topics such as positive emotions, character strengths, mindfulness, resilience, and post-traumatic growth. You 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.

Psychology of Food 
Fall/Spring, 3 Credits 
We all have a relationship to food and it is much more than physiology. This course explores the neurological, psychological, cultural, and social aspects of our relationship with food. Food’s historical and current meaning are considered: From Social Media Food Pornographers and ethically-inspired vegans to the paradox of growing obesity amidst malnourishment and eating disorders. Food can be used as means of social connectedness, be a mechanism of exclusion, or a theme in mental illnesses. Food is indeed psychology.
