  • What is a track? What’s the difference between a track and the regular Master’s programme?

    The Graduate School of Psychology offers three Master’s of Science programmes:

    • Psychology 
    • Healthcare Psychology (Dutch-taught only),
    • Research Master’s in Psychology.

    A master’s track is a specialisation within a Master’s programme, with a specific profile and (partly) specific modules.

    Within the Master’s programme in Psychology we offer 10 master’s tracks, 9 of those are offered in English: Behavioural Data Science, Brain & Cognition in Society, Coaching & Vitality in Organisations, Consultancy and Organisational Development, Cultural Psychology, Health Promotion & Behaviour Change, Human Resource and Career Management, Sport and Performance Psychology and Social Influence.

    Within the Master’s programme in Healthcare Psychology we offer 4 Master’s tracks, all of which are offered in Dutch only.

    There are no tracks in the Research Master’s in Psychology. This Master’s has a major/minor system instead.
