What Others Say
"After finishing my bachelor at University College Utrecht, I was looking for the most challenging Master’s programme in the field of Developmental Psychology. I found Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence. As it is a Research Master’s programme, the group of students is small and the seminars are intense. The main focus lies on critically evaluating studies dealing with children and adolescents, acquiring the methodological and statistical skills to answer research questions and placing knowledge in a theoretical context.
Students have the opportunity to do research in their own field of interest (e.g. Adolescents, Social and Personality Development, Psychosocial Problems and Cognition). Even though the assignments can be hard work, most students find the time for a job and an active social life. The skills taught in this programme can be seen as preparatory for taking up a PhD."
