  • How can we tackle polarization in multi-ethnic classrooms?
  • What leads to game addiction and inactivity in our society?
  • How do we make our schools inclusive?
  • What do children need to find their own solutions to bullying at school?
  • How do parenting support programs developed in Western countries fit into non-Western communities?

INNOVATION IN PEDAGOGIC SERVICES

If you want to make a contribution to these contemporary social challenges involving the relationship between children and youth and their guardians and educators, this might be the Master's for you. In this programme you will learn how to research issues surrounding children and youth, and contribute to the drafting of new policies that can improve their position, welfare and development. Are you interested in looking beyond national borders? Youth, Education and Society (previously: 'Maatschappelijke opvoedingsvraagstukken') is the only Master’s programme in the Netherlands that specifically focuses on innovating pedagogical policy and practice, both nationally and internationally.
