Behavioural Data Science

Understanding data about human behaviour is an important and valuable skill in today's society. Companies, public institutions and governmental organizations — they all use the continuous stream of big data to describe and predict human behaviour.

Brain & Cognition in Society

Apply knowledge from the field of Brain and Cognitive Sciences to answer important societal questions. You learn to set up applied experiments, and to translate empirical findings into practical advice.

Cultural Psychology

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.

Coaching & Vitality in Organisations

The track focuses on occupational health psychology, more specifically the psychology of interventions that promote the well-being and functioning of people at work. The background, development, and application of work-related coaching and other interventions (including mindfulness) play a key role in this track.

Consultancy & Organisational Development

The track focuses on organisational psychology; this discipline studies the relationship between employees and their social working environment (e.g., colleagues, supervisors, teams, organization as a whole).

Psychology: Health Promotion and Behaviour Change

Almost all children hate smoking, yet about a quarter of young adults take up smoking. What changed in-between childhood and adulthood and what can we do to prevent this behaviour? Similar questions can be asked for problematic use of drugs, or unprotected sex, overweight and obesity.

Human Resource & Career Management

This track focuses on personnel psychology, the discipline that examines individual processes within the organization. It is the study of how organisations hire and retain the right people for the right job.

Social Influence

Why are emotional appeals in advertising campaigns sometimes effective and sometimes not? How do we encourage fewer people to cycle in pedestrian areas? How do we study the effectiveness of measures to prevent tax evasion?

Sport & Performance Psychology

What psychological processes are involved in peak performance? That is the main question in this Master’s track. This question is divided into two sub-questions (1) How do you help people perform at their best when it really matters? and (2) How do you help people reach very difficult goals?
