Become a social scientist in the field of developmental psychology, pedagogy, and/or interdisciplinary social sciences.
From the day a child is born, their family and the culture in which they are raised have a huge impact on their socio-emotional development and psychological adjustment. As the child grows up, their school and networks of friends and peers become more and more influential in their development. The two-year Master's programme in Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DaSCA) gives you the theoretical and methodological background to analyse this development. The programme focuses on both normal and abnormal development processes. Explicit attention is given to the study of interventions and risk factors in children's and adolescent's cognitive and social-emotional development and adjustment.
