Among the tasks of the educational psychologist, we can find analyzing the development of cognitive and emotional processes, the evaluation and diagnosis of difficulties, developmental disorders, as well as aptitudes, academic performance and socio-emotional skills. Additionally, an educational psychologist participates in the school by designing educational programs and providing educational guidance and counseling.
It focuses on providing students with a deep understanding of the psychological processes that occur in social contexts, that is, it studies the way in which individuals think, feel and behave in these types of contexts. Contents related to social influence processes, attitudes, identity and group processes, prejudices and discrimination are addressed from the main theories, such as attribution theory, social learning and social identity, among others.
It focuses on the application of psychological principles and knowledge to the work environment, human resources management and the analysis of organizational dynamics. Some of the topics addressed in this specialization are organizational psychology, personnel selection and evaluation, talent management, professional development, motivation, satisfaction and work well-being.

Recognition is understood as the acceptance by the Antonio de Nebrija University of the credits that, having been obtained in official studies, at this or another University, are computed into different studies for the purpose of obtaining an official degree.

Credits may be recognized in the new studies in the following cases:

Credits corresponding to final research projects for bachelor's and master's degrees will not be recognized either.
The recognition of credits must be requested by the student at the time of formalizing their enrollment. The student must also pay the fees established for this purpose, and submit the following documentation to the Registrar's Office:
The Academic Committee of each department will study in detail the documentation provided by the student, and will issue the appropriate resolution accepting or denying the recognition and/or transfer.

The University regulates and implements the recognition of credits in student records, based on the current legal regulations and the internal regulations that are reflected in the "PGA_1 Procedure for the recognition and transfer of credits", approved by the Vice Rector's Office for Academic Planning and Faculty, and that is available in Red Nebrija and in the Student Portal.
