The Department of Social Psychology offers an English-speaking master’s programme in Cultural Psychology. We invite ambitious Dutch and international students with a genuine interest in (cross-) cultural psychology to apply for this selective, one-year programme.
The program combines approaches from cultural and cross-cultural psychology and deals with three central issues:

The Cultural Psychology master’s programme has a strong international orientation. Our staff members have an extensive international network and cooperate with researchers across the world. Students may make use of this network and follow a course or conduct research abroad (e.g., for their thesis or internship), for example at our partner university in Ghana.
In order to provide students with first-hand intercultural experiences, students have the opportunity to join the annual study trip organized by the student fraction and get to know a non-Western culture such as Ghana.
