Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence


Course Description

The Master's in Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence focuses on general processes of socialisation and child rearing and offers insight into the development of young people.

The Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DaSCA) programme focuses on general processes of socialisation and child rearing and on normative developmental pathways. Considerable attention is given to the risk factors involved in the development of children and adolescents with a view to developing treatment strategies and preventive systematic intervention programmes. The programme courses focus on theory and research in development and socialisation in childhood and adolescence, methodology and statistics, and basic academic skills. In the second year students will complete an internship and write their thesis in the form of a draft research article for international publication. Until now about 70% of DaSCA graduates obtained a PhD position within 4 months of graduation, whereas the the other graduates obtained research jobs outside university. Looking for more information?
