LEARN ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS

How do children and adolescents develop? How do emotional and behavioural disorders emerge, and how can they be prevented? How can you use scientific knowledge to advise schools? In the Master’s programme Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology, you will learn how to apply your knowledge of developmental psychology in clinical practice.

Care, treatment and support

During this one-year Master’s programme, you will learn all about the psychological care, treatment and support of children and young people. We will also address how policies and institutions can contribute to child development.

As a child and youth psychologist, you will study:

  • systematic changes over the course of a child’s life;
  • the developmental processes that underlie and account for these changes;
  • the social context of developmental changes.

You will also learn knowledge and skills for assessing (diagnostics), treating (intervention), and preventing problematic youth development.

Societal issues

In addition to these topics, you will also learn about relevant societal issues, such as:

  • bullying and its prevention
  • juvenile criminal behaviour

Research-driven

This programme is offered by various chair groups, which conduct research into:

  • development and influencing of psychopathology
  • social and personality development
  • biological developmental psychology and developmental psychopathology

Researchers from these programmes teach courses and supervise the students’ theses. Students also have the opportunity to take part in their research projects as research assistants.

Learn to look beyond the limits of psychology

In order to prevent and alleviate psycho-social problems in children and young people, a variety of perspectives are needed: pedagogical, medical, educational and sometimes legal. Students in this Master's programme will therefore learn to consider these ‘non-psychological’ factors as well. You can also enrol in elective courses in other fields of study. If you do a clinical internship, you may work as part of a multi-disciplinary team together with child psychiatrists, social-psychiatric caregivers, social workers and internal mentors.

Internship

The Master’s programme is structured in such a way that you can begin your internship immediately in September. If you decide to enroll in our Master’s programme, it is therefore vital that you start looking for an internship position in time. It becomes progressively more difficult to find an internship position if you start applying later in the year.

Objective of the progrmme

You will develop into a scientist-practitioner, who is able to make a difference in the practice of child and adolescent psychology by tying the knowledge gained in theoretical courses to practical experience obtained during your internship.This Master's programme prepares you for a career as a care provider, diagnostician or policy consultant. You may also choose to continue your studies, as this programme qualifies you (in the Netherlands) for post-academic education as a clinical psychologist, school psychologist and the registration process for NIP Child- and Youth Psychologist/NIP Registered Psychologist/Child and Youth.

INFORMATION-DRIVEN IN A DIVERSE SOCIETY 

Software systems enable us to do things that would otherwise be difficult, time-consuming, or even impossible. In the Master’s programme Computing Science, you will learn the advanced concepts, software design methods, problem-solving techniques, and analytic skills necessary to create information-driven systems and applications for our diverse society.

Within the programme, you can select one of four tracks:

  • Programming Technology
  • Algorithm Design and Analysis
  • Advanced Planning and Decision Making
  • Algorithmic Data Analysis

The programme is research oriented. You will explore theories and techniques in computing science and software design as well as participate in the research done to advance the field.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE 

To successfully design software, you first need to describe and analyse the relevant domain and its properties using language, modeling, or data. You then need to develop suitable software technologies and algorithms to derive the outcomes you want to achieve. Finally, you need an easy and efficient way to implement these components and turn them into an actual application.

You will learn to analyse and develop the concepts, design methods, and techniques underlying all of these steps.
