Learning outcomes

After completing the study module the student is familiar with the experimental, epidemiological, survey, and intervention studies that investigate the relationship between the physical environment and well-being. The aim of the course is to deepen the understanding of the associations between the physical environment and well-being as part of the psychologist’s professional knowledge. Moreover, the aim is to develop abilities to literary and oral scientific communication.


The student has read and summarized one research article as a presentation. The student has discussed and brainstormed in a group about the strengths and weaknesses of the studies. S/he has also discussed and developed ideas of future research questions and designs.
