The Graduate School of Human Interaction and Growth (GHIG) was established in March 2006 at Faculty of Psychology at the University of Bergen. GHIG collaborates closely with the Department of Health Promotion and Development and the Department of Psychosocial Sciences. The graduate school focuses on social and psychological change processes within fields such as organisation and leadership, school development and learning, and health promotion and preventive initiatives.

The PhD-projects connected with GHIG are based on a broad theoretical foundation, but with a clear emphasis on theories of change within a social scientific relational perspective. Important topics and analytical concepts are related to social processes and relations such as social conflicts, discourses, social differences, social trends, social cognitive processes, democracy, marginalisation and gender and development.
