This programme focuses on in-depth study of theory as well as on the acquisition of professional and research skills, which can be applied in a wide range of psychology specialisations.
The one-year programme distinguishes itself by the fact that students are not only taught about the functioning of psychological processes, but that they also learn to connect these processes to behavioural consequences, with the aim of understanding self-regulation and behavioural control. This means that you will develop knowledge of psychology as a science, and that you will also learn to apply this knowledge to practical problems and to develop effective interventions. The teaching programme is based on state-of-the art scientific research and maintains a strong emphasis on the acquisition of academic and research skills. Completion of the MSc degree prepares students for subsequent academic degrees, including a PhD.
