LEARN ABOUT THE PSYCHOLOGY OF CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS. Read more

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:

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 enrol 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. Check the study programme page for more about the internships.

For information about the internship and application procedures, please contact our internship coordinator at  as soon as possible after enrolling in the Master’s programme. 

OBJECTIVE OF THE PROGRAMME

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.

NIP Basic Psychodiagnostics Registration (BAPD)

If you are a Dutch-speaking student, this Master's programme offers you the possibility to earn your NIP Basic Psychodiagnostics Registration (BAPD) (in Dutch) during your Master’s or afterwards. You can also apply for different postgraduate programmes (Healthcare Psychologist; in Dutch: Gezondheidszorgpsycholoog, Child and Adolescent Psychologist NIP/SKJ or School Psychologist) or pursue a PhD position. For international students, formal accreditation needs to take place at an individual level by the national union of psychologists of your home country.

EXAMINE YOUTH ISSUES FROM AN INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVE

Are you interested in themes such as adolescents' substance use and addiction problems, antisocial and criminal behaviour, marginalisation and exclusion, excessive use of social media, and social inequalities and mental and physical health? Would you like to know why Dutch youngsters are among the happiest in Europe? 

The Master’s programme Youth Studies will enable you to look beyond the limits of individual fields of study. You will learn to observe and examine specific issues by combining different social scientific disciplines (psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology) in an interdisciplinary approach.

By integrating knowledge from different disciplines you will be able to advance fundamental understanding of youth issues and to address youth problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research. Additionally, you will gain knowledge about policies and interventions regarding youth issues and develop academic skills to conduct research in the field of youth.

This one-year Master's programme relates to topics and challenges relevant and, often, unique to youth such as:

  • substance use, addiction, and risky behaviour
  • psychosocial problems
  • social inequalities and wellbeing
  • radicalisation, discrimination, intolerance
  • accessibility of health care
  • social media and the digital environment of youngsters
  • antisocial and prosocial behaviour
  • youth culture, pop music and cultural lifestyle
  • friendship, social networks and the social environment of adolescents
  • sexual development and behaviour
  • changes in youth welfare and youth policy

EDUCATION ON THE BASIS OF LEADING RESEARCH 

We have a strong (and growing) research team, conducting research on a broad range of youth issues, changes in youth welfare and youth policy. The programme’s instructional staff consists of researchers with excellent national and international reputation, including Prof Tom ter Bogt, Dr Regina van den Eijnden, Prof Catrin Finkenauer, Dr Zeena Harakeh, Dr Ina Koning, Dr Margreet de Looze, Dr Margot Peeters, Dr Gonneke Stevens, Prof Maykel Verkuyten, Prof Wilma Vollebergh and Prof John de Wit.

DEVELOP YOURSELF

Through an innovative approach in interdisciplinary science, the Master’s programme will prepare you for the challenges associated with today’s increasingly global and diverse workforce in academic institutes, policy organisations, and NGOs. It offers you an exciting choice of themes, perspectives and methodological approaches and provides you with the opportunity to personally design an important part of your Master's research. You will also participate in an internship in an organization in the professional field of youth studies. This freedom of choice stimulates your personal development and optimally prepares you for a career in research or advisory positions.

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE

This Master’s programme will prepare you for a career in the field of youth research, youth welfare and youth policy. By acquiring in-depth knowledge on youth issues, academic skills and competencies you will develop into a highly-qualified science practitioner. You will receive a structured and systematic training in theoretically and methodologically advanced research that will equip you to help solve social problems in the field of youth either within or outside of academia.
