Psychology is the scientific study of human behavior and experience. At the INU distance learning university, we bring the psychological principles of human behavior to life, because we:

  • explore the emergence, forms of expression and regulation of emotions.
  • investigate what drives and motivates people, be it through inner needs or external incentives.
  • deal with the interaction between people and the influences of social environments.
  • are intensively involved in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental disorders and problems.
  • analyze the behavior of people in the workplace and in organizations in order to promote efficiency and satisfaction.
