Program description

Masters in Social Psychology: Regulation of Social Behavior (RM)

Become the best scientist and scholar that you can be! This Master’s program in Social Psychology takes a multidisciplinary approach to understand fundamental social psychological processes. The underlying idea is that new insights regarding human behavior can be understood more completely by incorporating evolutionary, cognitive, and social structural perspectives into the study of diverse social and psychological phenomena, including self-processes, interpersonal relations, and intra- and inter-group phenomena. Social psychology is therefore an important factor in countless situations and settings.

Social Psychology Curriculum

During the first year, courses focus on basic principles and advanced skills, including methods, statistics, and writing; you will also complete a group-based research project. The second year integrates this knowledge and places it in a broader, multidisciplinary context, you will complete two research projects and write a thesis as the culmination of your Master’s degree.

Teaching takes place on a small scale in seminars, workshops, and individual mentorships. Our lecturers are internationally recognized in diverse fields. The psychology program features special facilities, including a dedicated research laboratory and a work study room, and has a truly international character: all teaching is in English, and more than half of our students come from outside the Netherlands.
