Project-X parties organized via Facebook. Unhealthy eating habits. Workplace bullying. Although a wide range of issues, the same rule applies to all of them: it comes down to the way in which people affect each other's behavior. In this Master’s program, you study human behavior and behavior change in a social, health, or organizational context.
During this Master's program, you will choose between the following three tracks:
- Social Influence: about the social influence of behavior and attitude change
- Health Promotion: about improving health-related behavior
- Work and Organisation: about the functioning and wellbeing of individuals and teams in organizations
By choosing track and elective courses you can explore your personal field of interest.
This Master's program connects closely to our research programs Social-cognitive and Interpersonal Determinants of Behaviour, Health Psychology: Self-regulation, and Work and Organisational Psychology. Connecting theory and practice is essential in our Master's. You will develop theory-driven interventions by means of the PATH model (Problem-Analysis-Test-Help).
The courses in this Master's program are rooted in international scientific literature and are focused on the international context. You can do your internship and/or thesis abroad or in (international) organizations in the Netherlands, such as Trendsactive, Coca Cola, Hays, Sogeti (in Dutch), Philips, and Nutricia.
As our student, you are primarily responsible for finding your own internship organization. The department of Social, Health, and Organisational Psychology has a database of internship organizations and has an international network that you can use.
