Research Master's programme in Psychology
Location: University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Research Master's programme in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam

Students interested in pursuing a career in science are encouraged to apply to our two-year Research Master in Psychology at the University of Amsterdam . Students choose from six specialisations in Psychology, one as their major and one as their minor. Students compile their own individual programme of study so that it suits their experience, ambitions, talents and interest. The programme has an international orientation. All courses are taught in English, by prominent scientists, and each year students take part in seminars on cutting edge developments in Psychology, offered by internationally renowned scholars. Moreover, students are actively involved in research themselves.

The programme offers a series of advanced courses on research methods and statistics, programming skills and scientific writing an presenting skills. On a theoretical level, students will attend specialised courses in at least two areas of Psychology. Students opting for a major in Social Psychology  can combine this with a minor in any of the five remaining research areas offered by the Psychology Department at the University of Amsterdam : Clinical Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Psychological Methods, Psychonomics and Work and Organizational Psychology. All these programmes received good to excellent ratings in the recent research appraisal. Combining a major in Social Psychology with a minor an another area, allows students to put the study of Social Psychology into a broader scientific context and stimulates them to pursue research that uses different methods and extends beyond the boundaries of the discipline. For example, the available resources in neuroimaging (fMRI), virtual reality and physiological measures can provide students with valuable methodological knowledge. Apart from taking courses, students engage in two research projects, at least one of them resulting in a report in the form of a publishable journal article. The goal of the programme is to furnish its graduates with a profound education and research experience in cutting edge psychological research. It seeks to prepare students for a scientific career, within or outside a university setting. On the following site http://www.student.uva.nl/msc-psychology you can find relevant information about the programme, you can download the digital course catalogue and find information about the application procedure.
