This two-year research programme is designed to teach students high-quality research skills in Child and Education Studies. It offers a solid base for either an academic or a professional career.
Graduates are able to design, conduct and evaluate applied scientific research, and can make the link between (clinical) practice and science.
The programme Developmental Psychopathology in Education and Child Studies is designed to serve as preparatory training for a PhD position. The programme also offers the opportunity to specialise in the field of social work and youth care, which meets society's need for academics who are trained in evidence based clinical assessment and treatment for children and families with psychological problems
The research master is a small scale programme, with an average of fifteen students each year.
At the beginning of the programme, you are allocated a supervisor – one of the professors – and a day-to-day mentor. While writing your thesis, you make a contribution to one of our research programmes, working closely with your supervisor and mentor within that research.
