Courses

In periods 1 and 2, you will take 4 compulsory subjects and 1 elective. Apart from these, you will take the Practical course in which you will work in a small group to address a challenge in your own domain, depending on your track. You will also start the Academic Professional module, which runs throughout the year. This module will teach you skills geared towards continuous professional development. This subject will expose you to professionals who teach masterclasses and who encourage you to jointly reflect on contemporary issues from their professional practice. You will also join other students to organise meetings and debates with the professional field and you will work on developing your identity and skills as an academic professional. This will enable you to continue playing a professional role in the changing society and labour market. You can find detailed descriptions on the 'courses' page.

Internship and Master’s thesis

In period 1 you will already start preparing for your internship, which will take place during periods 3 and 4. The Master's Youth, Education & Society facilitates internship positions both in the Netherlands and abroad. Students ideally develop their thesis in close collaboration with internship organizations. We have a wide network with partners both in the Netherlands and abroad especially with partners who work in so called Development Countries, but students are invited to bring in their own network partners. It is possible to carry out your internship and data collection for your thesis abroad from February until May. Students may bring in internship organisations in and outside of the Netherlands. In all cases the internships need to be approved by the programme. Questions? Please mail master.yes@uu.nl.
