Is it really possible for everyone to profit equally from development while still respecting the environment? In our view it is. Through sustainable trade, equal rights and equal opportunities we believe that a healthy balance between people, earth and prosperity can be achieved. The Bachelor of International Development Management gives you the knowledge and motivation to take steps towards promoting this balance. In your study programme, you can opt to focus on reconstructing society after natural disasters, empower people living in rural areas or contributing to fair economic chains from raw material to consumer. In all cases, you will learn to bring people together, defend interests of different stakeholders, and to facilitate and support developments and innovation. You will also learn more about geography, biology and economics. You will deal with intercultural communication, international cooperation, the green economy, reconstruction after disasters, strengthening the position of farmers, fair trade, business administration, and project management. In the first part of your studies, you will get to know the exciting field of International Development Management. In blocks, you will cover topics such as market-sector, international development, company-organisation and innovation, from the perspective of the study programme. You will also do a short work placement; you will deepen your knowledge and learn to apply it, for example by setting up your own company. In the course of the programme you will choose a specific focus, with a minor to deepen or broaden your knowledge and an internship to put that knowledge into practice. You will complete your study programme by carrying out a final thesis project in a company or organisation. After graduating from International Development Management, you could find work in a commercial or non commercial environment. You will have developed strong skills in working with people. Perhaps you will become a bridge builder between farmers and a supermarket, or between farmers and the government. Possible jobs include sustainable certification advisor, manager of a cocoa cooperative, food safety project manager and advisor on reconstruction following natural disasters. Professional fields: Sustainable Value Chains Disaster Recovery Management Rural Development and Innovation You will be following objective specific courses, doing practical periods and preparing an exciting graduation assignment. In the third or fourth year you will make a choice out of many available minors. A minor is actually a short course of your own choice. It can be specialistic or broad, in which case it can add to your interests and talents. The programme is competency based: each theoretical subject supports workgroup situations in which students tackle practical problems and explore workable solutions. This means that you will be active from day one, learning to work independently as you collaborate with others. The programme culminates in practical placements and a thesis project conducted in an international setting. [-]

Bachelors in Humanities and Social Sciences. What is Psychology? Psychology is the science concerned with behavior, both human and nonhuman—animal, and is only about 125 years old. It is a broad discipline, essentially spanning subject matter from biology to sociology. Psychology studies the intersection of two critical relationships: one between brain function and behavior, and one between the environment and behavior. As a science, psychology follows scientific methods, using careful observation, experimentation, and analysis. Psychology is the study of mental processes, cognition, and behavior. Psychologist are concerned with how the brain and nervous system function, how perception evolves from sensation, how we learn and know, and what it is that motivates us. Psychology covers the total life span to learn more about how individuals function in family, community, and society. Psychologists want to learn what can go wrong in development, how it can be changed, and how to resolve organizational, personal, interpersonal, and family conflict. It is a dynamic field in which new knowledge leads to new understandings that grow out of a base in research. It is both a theoretical and applied science. If I major in Psychology, what kind of job can I get? Career opportunities in psychology continue to grow for employment in health care especially outpatient mental health and substance abuse treatment clinics. Numerous job opportunities are in schools, public and private social service agencies, and management consulting services. Graduates in Psychology can expect to find a wide range of positions in personnel management, psychiatric aides, probation officers, mental health workers, drug abuse counselors, and researcher assistants. Advanced degrees lead to opportunities for basic research, licensing as clinical psychologists or marriage and family therapist, and as college and university faculty. Psychologists also work as consultants in government and industry. If I receive an AA degree in Psychology, can I transfer to a four-year college? Yes! Cañada College offers everything you need to finish an AA degree in psychology as well as to transfer to a four-year college or university. Program Learning Outcomes: Students completing this program will be able to: Analyze social science concepts and theories. Evaluate diverse viewpoints related to the human experience.
