Educational Philosophy

Applied Social Psychology is the basis to the belief system of the Institute. The hope of the Institute is that Research made by students will enlighten the Academic world and the Media and be seen by both as serious intellectual contributions.  These contributions will be viewed as alternative solutions to how we as humans can better ourselves, better our situations and better our relationships with nature.

The Institute believes that it offers students an alternative source of higher education that does not involve unnecessary coursework.  The idea of a Pre-Test followed by an original piece of research (the Theses/Dissertation) cuts out the bureaucracy of traditional higher education and allows for innovative ideas by regular people to be put into action.  Higher Education among Doctoral Programs is a principle that should be delineated and accessible to all.

Achieving a Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Social Psychology is not a means to using the term Doctor loosely.  If a graduate uses the term Doctor when referring to him or her self, this is okay as long as they understand that above all things, they consider themselves as Psychologists.  When a student enrolls into the Institute of Advanced Social Psychology, he/she is focusing on a desire to become a Social Psychologist and the Institute is set up to address this need.

Plagiarism is unacceptable and will not be tolerated at any time.  If plagiarism is discovered after a diploma is issued, the graduate’s status will be revoked.  His/her Dissertation will be deemed as ineligible for consideration of Doctoral level work.

With the increased globalization that is bringing people together, Social Psychologists bring important knowledge and skills to understanding diverse cultures.  They study how human beings relate to each other and also to technology.  The Educational Philosophy of the Institute is based upon solid ethics, integrity and common sense.  Graduates of the Institute can expect to serve as consultants to communities and organizations.
