At the Freie Universität Berlin there are two divisions that work in this field: our division of work and organizational psychology as well as the division for industrial and social psychology.
Professional development and socialization of people is considered within the context of organizational development. Methods of individual and organizational diagnosis as well as of organizational design are also designed accordingly.
Research in this field also looks at the relationships between gainful employment, housework, and recreation time over the course of a person’s life, and at gender-specific career patterns in professions. Professional Development is therefore also offered as an additional elective subject related to research in this field.
The courses offered in this area focus on the obligatory examination subject of organizational psychology as well as on industrial psychology in the subjects of business administration and economics.
