Program Description

Master in Social Psychology: Regulation of Social Behaviour (research)

Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

Become the best scientist and scholar that you can be! Our Master program in Social Psychology takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding 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.

STRUCTURE OF THE PROGRAM

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 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.

YOUR FUTURE CAREER

As a social psychology graduate, you can work in college or university settings, in the private sector as a consultant, researcher, or manager, or in government and non-profit organizations, designing and evaluating policies and programs in education, conflict resolution, environmental protection, etc. You can also pursue your studies to Ph.D. level.
