Getting to work with all your knowledge and skills
The Master’s programme Youth Studies educates you to be an academic professional. If you complete the programme, you will possess the knowledge, competences and methodical skills you need for a wide range of academic positions in the big field of youth welfare. You will learn to:
- interpret research, analyse it and carry it out yourself;
- analyse policies and develop them based on scientific knowledge;
- contribute to the execution of tangible interventions and policies;
- investigate the effectiveness of certain interventions and policy measures;
- contribute to the implementation of interventions and policies that have been proven to be effective.
Getting to know the field
During the programme, you will frequently be in the field. During the internship, you will gain experience in a junior position. You will also follow guest lectures by academics from the field. These guest lectures are often the result of cooperation with knowledge institutions for research programmes. Employees from those organizations organise guest lectures and in doing so, provide the education system with the latest developments.
Professional basic skills
You will learn professional basic skills during the module 'Academic Professional'. These skills vary from job orientation, maintaining professional networks and professional ethics to handling the conflicting interests of clients and those who commissioned you, peer reviews and lifelong learning.
