Leerdoelen After completing the team internship in Social Psychology, students:
- can formulate a scientific view on group dynamics,
- can recognize dynamic processes within and between groups,
- can independently influence the own group process,
- can give practical advice to third parties based on these views and
skills,
- have experience in collaborating with a third-party partner
Omschrijving This team internship offers students the opportunity to complete
their internship in a group project. Students will learn to formulate a
theoretically grounded analysis on group processes and put their
knowledge into practice when writing a policy advice for a third
party.
The internship uses a multi-level approach in which students learn to
recognize social processes on different levels of analysis: culture,
social identity, interpersonal relations/individual differences. Both
the recognition of processes “within” levels (e.g., conflicts between
groups) as “cross-level” effects are considered.
The team internship first aims to enable students to develop and
formulate scientific views on group dynamics and connect this to a
societal issue proposed by a third party. Theory and practice will be
linked through guest lectures by academics who are experts in the
field of group dynamics, social inequality, and/or have experience in
developing policy advice for the business sector and the
government. Second, this team internship offers students the
opportunity to obtain practical experience in working within their
own sub-group and analyzing these group processes. In regular
practical assignments students learn to apply their knowledge about
groups and write an individual portfolio reflecting on this. Third, this
team internship connects students to third parties and invites them
to use their knowledge and experience in group dynamics to conduct

(qualitative) field research to ground their theoretical knowledge and
to write a policy advice and prepare a presentation for third party
partners.
