Research at the Department of Educational Psychology examines three core topics:

1. Career choices and decision-making processes, and career orientation at school
2. Inclusive education at school
3. Motivational processes in learning at school and university.

Moreover, we conduct educational public policy research with respect to children's and adolescents' educational needs.
