Department of Work, Organizational and Media Psychology

The Department of Work, Organizational and Media Psychology was founded in 2005, headed by Prof. Dr. Bernad Batinic as an independent subdivision of the Institute of Education and Psychology. Currently, the core team consists of four scientific staff members and two office assistants. The team is complemented by a number of interns and student assistants on a semester or project basis.

The research areas and research priorities of the department are oriented towards exploring connections between media psychology and work and organizational psychology. This covers topics like the meaning of work, the use and impact of media and new technologies, as well as online data collection methods.

The university courses held by the department focus on new media and media psychology, work and organizational psychology, and web sciences. In addition, we offer courses on quantitative methods and a range of courses for undergraduate and graduate students.
