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.
