What distinguishes the Utrecht Master’s programme in Youth, Education and Society from similar programmes?
A broad, interdisciplinary view on pedagogy with a focus on societal issues
While other programmes are geared towards the provision of individual care, the Utrecht pedagogy programme is not. The programme at Utrecht covers the full range of domains and facilities in which children are reared, the link to contemporary social issues and the international perspective.
Connecting pedagogical knowledge to related disciplines
This programme addresses pedagogy in conjunction with perspectives from sociology, psychology, education and anthropology.
Showcase yourself through a track
The Master’s programme has three tracks and two course completion profiles. The tracks: Youth Policy: Education and Prevention (YEP), Pedagogy and International Development (PID), and Education for Inclusive Societies (EFIS). The YEP and PID tracks follow the same course completion profile, while the EFIS track follows a partly different one.
In addition, each year a few students focus their study on the sports (policy) theme, in a national or international context. You use these tracks to showcase yourself through:
- the internship/thesis (national or international)
- the content of the Academic Professional module
- the specific details of assignments from the core subjects
- the electives
- the group challenge in your Practical module
