More information



A programme that focuses on persons-in-contexts and the community at large such as cities, neighbourhoods, virtual, workplace, and school communities. By activating the resources present in the community itself, the course offers the theoretical models of social, general, developmental, clinical and health psychology to identify, for preventive purposes, areas and groups of those at risk. Students will gain theoretical knowledge needed to encourage social change and the promotion of pro-social attitudes to develop projects that prevent mental, physical and social health problems by detecting the needs of groups and communities and to prevent risky behaviour and aggressive conduct. Students will be able to evaluate the mental, physical and social health problems of groups and operate interventions in the psycho-social fields adaptable to the situation.

Career opportunities

The Master’s degree programme in Psychology of Community, Wellness Promotion, and Social Change train professionals in the following skills: a) assess the main health, mental health and social problems in specific social groups and communities through scientifically validated tools and investigation techniques; b) design psychosocial interventions that are culturally sensitive to the contexts (e.g. the critical aspects of virtual communities, bullying in schools, cultural integration in neighborhoods and cities) based on the main theoretical models of the scientific literature.
Graduates will become specialists and proficient in the profession of Psychological Sciences and, after passing the State Exam and registering to the professional Order of Psychologists, will be able to work and function as a Psychologist (with the possibility to carry out the psychotherapeutic profession after further studies in graduate schools enabling the exercise of Psychotherapy). The graduate can also work as a professional in the social and public health facilities (consistent with applicable rules for access to the role of psychologist in the National Health System) and private (local associations, national and international social cooperation agencies), and as a professional psychologist, in particular in the field consulting and advising for the design of social and health policies, and in evaluating the effectiveness of prevention projects.
