The Clinical Psychology programme offered by Erasmus University Rotterdam consists of a series of modules or courses. Every course covers one specific psychological theme. All of the activities that you will undertake during this period, i.e. lectures, tutorials, practical meetings and assignments, are related to this theme. The Master’s programme consists of three modules in which you will both study the topics of the specialisation of Clinical Psychology ( i.e., courses and pracitcals clinical skills training) and/or Brain and Cognition (i.e., practicals research skills training) and one course in statistics.
In the second part of the academic year you will independently carry out scientific research in the field of clinical psychology as a mandatory part of the programme. When you have chosen the track in clinical skills training, you have the option to do a practical internship.
The specialisation in Clinical Psychology prepares you for a career as a policy researcher or advisor at institutions researching addictions, like the Trimbos institute, NIVEL, or governmental organisations; alternatively, you could work as policy advisor for health insurance companies.
