How do socialisation contexts influence the development of children and adolescents?
Why is it that young males in particular tend to get involved in crime? Is it because they have the "wrong" friends? Were they not socialised properly? Is it due to dispositional factors? Are there hereditary factors at work?
From the day a child is born, his family and the culture in which he’s raised have a huge impact on his socio-emotional development and psychological adjustment. As he grows up, his school and networks of friends and peers become more and more influential in his 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.

An academic Bachelor's degree in Social or Behavioural Sciences (for instance Psychology, Pedagogical Sciences, Interdisciplinary Social Science or Sociology)
Our International Students Admission’s office will verify whether a non-Dutch academic degree is equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree at a Dutch research university. All international Bachelor’s degrees are evaluated based on standards set by the NUFFIC. If your degree is assessed as less than equivalent to a 3-year Dutch research University degree, or as a bachelor from a university of applied sciences, you are most likely not eligible for admission.
Please see course website for further details.
