Psychology (Research MSc)

Course Description

The University of Amsterdam offers an outstanding two-year Research Master’s programme in Psychology. This programme is designed for excellent and motivated students with a genuine interest in psychological research, who are interested in a career in academic or applied (industry) research.

Experimental approach

The Research Master’s programme is firmly embedded in the experimental approach to psychology that characterizes the psychology programme at the University of Amsterdam. Specialised courses are taught in informal, highly interactive small groups settings. In addition to content-related courses covering all areas in psychology, the programme offers a series of advanced courses on research methods and statistics, programming and computer skills, and writing and presentation skills. Central to the Research Master’s programme are two separate research projects (Research project #1 and Research project #2). In principle, papers based on these research projects should qualify for publication in international academic journals.
International orientation

Taught by international top researchers, the Research Master's programme offers a unique opportunity to further specialise in any area of psychology including:

* Clinical Psychology
* Developmental Psychology
* Methodology and Statistics
* Psychonomics
* Social Psychology
* Work and Organisational Psychology

Furthermore, the unique major-minor structure of the programme ensures that students get involved in advanced courses in at least two of the aforementioned areas of Psychology, one of which is chosen as their major. Finally, the programme has a strong international orientation. The teaching staff has an extensive international network, and cooperates on a regular basis with top-level researchers across the world. Students are explicitly encouraged to spend parts of their research training abroad.

Accreditation and degree

The quality of this Master's programme has been positively assessed by the Accreditation Organisation of The Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme students will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in Psychology and the title Master of Science (MSc).

Entry Requirements

All applicants who wish to enrol in the research master's programme in Psychology must meet a number of basic requirements regarding: * Grade average; * Academic level and background; * Proficiency in English.
