We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
In the master programme in Education and Child Studies students can choose a specialisation in one of the sub disciplines of Education and Child Studies. All specialisations prioritize the students’ academic education.
This programme focuses on the link between theory, research and practice. Students are taught to seek evidence-based solutions to problems occurring in child-rearing and education.
At the start of this one-year programme, you will choose a specialisation. All specialisations have one course in common, in which you will learn about the practice of empirical research.
The rest of the year you will spend deepening your scientific knowledge in the field of your choice. You will fulfil an internship and complete your master's project in which you will undertake your own research
