Social and Health Psychology

This Master offers training in theory and research methodology in health and health behaviour research across a variety of psychological perspectives.

This Master's programme highlights issues and questions relating to how and why people manage to regulate their behaviour in the face of competing interests and distracting circumstances. The purpose of the master programme is to familiarize students with theories of behavioural regulation that focus on motivational, affective, and cognitive aspects of the regulation of behaviour and their interaction.

In addition, the Master aims to teach students how they may apply basic knowledge and innovative research methods, in addressing specific research questions relating to phenomena of behavioural regulation. This approach to behavioural regulation is demonstrated in two domains of psychology, namely interpersonal behaviour and health behaviour. For those students who want to combine a research career with clinical work the program facilitates extracurricular clinical internships.

Learn to assess and treat cognitive behavioural disorders

Are you interested in the relationship between the brain and behaviour? As a neuropsychologist, you will study psychological functions such as perception, memory, language, attention, emotion and motor skills.

This includes:

  • how the brain mediates these psychological functions;
  • the consequences of brain damage;
  • how to treat disorders.

Disorders can be caused by a wide range of aetiologies, such as an accident, a stroke, neural degeneration (Alzheimer’s, Wernicke-Korsakov syndrome), or developmental defects (dyslexia, ADHD, autism).

What effect do brain injuries have on memory, attention or perception?

Education driven by research and clinical experience

The lecturers at the Neuropsychology Master’s programme all work in clinical practice and/or conduct state-of-the-art cognitive research at Utrecht University. This integration of science and practice feeds the Master’s programme’s educational activities.

Work in multidisciplinary teams

In this Master’s programme, you will learn how to work together with other behavioural and medical professionals. Our lecturers often have different specialist backgrounds, and you will experience the same multidisciplinary atmosphere in your internship as well.

Limited admission

The Neuropsychology Master’s programme is limited to a maximum of 65 admissions for the academic year. This means that no more than 65 candidates will be permitted to participate.

Purpose of the programme

In the Neuropsychology Master’s programme, you will learn the knowledge and skills needed to assess and treat cognitive disorders resulting from brain dysfunction. You will develop into an academic professional, who can apply the latest scientific models of functions such as perception, memory and attention in clinical practice or to innovate assessment and treatment.

Depending on your previous education, after completing this Master’s programme, you can continue your studies and:

Using knowledge of psychology to improve daily life

With the Master’s programme Applied Cognitive Psychology, you will apply the most up-to-date knowledge of cognition to situations and solutions for problems that occur in daily life. Students will apply knowledge of human cognitive, sensory and motor systems in real-life situations.

Processing information

During this one-year programme, you will learn about processing information, especially about how you can use that information to advise clients on how to improve communications. That knowledge is useful for making signage or advertising more effective, for example, or for making products more user-friendly.

Students also learn to come up with solutions for a wide range of problems that can occur in professional practice. Humans are dramatically changing their environment using increasingly complex technology, such as the Internet, social media, robotics and automation. In order to design a living environment that is well suited to human cognitive abilities, we must have a good understanding of how humans process knowledge and their skill at applying it.

Apply psychological knowledge creatively to everyday problems

International orientation

This Master’s programme is internationally oriented, from the literature used in class to the opportunity to do an internship and write a thesis abroad, and from the option of attending electives at foreign universities to participating in international summer schools, research conferences or workshops.

Learn to work in multidisciplinary teams

Both our lecturers and our students have very diverse backgrounds. During the study programme, you will spend a lot of time learning to work in multi-disciplinary teams. Accurate and careful communication is vital to that process.

Humans are dramatically changing their environment using increasingly complex technology

The purpose of the programme

Once you have completed the Master’s programme, you will be a true academic professional who can apply scientific knowledge in day-to-day practice, such as acting as an independent consultant on ergonomic problems. As a member of an interdisciplinary team, you will contribute to solving these problems together with designers, policy makers, technicians, computer scientists and business experts. You can also advise on the sensory aspects of marketing communications. As a person with a Master’s degree, you will also have developed excellent verbal and written communication skills to communicate with all sorts of audiences.
