Leiden University

Master Postgraduate Leiden

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary If you are interested in how parental and professional caregivers shape children's lives, the master's specialisation in Child and Family Science is the ideal choice for you.
Course description The specialisation Child and Family Science focuses on child development in the context of different caregiving circumstances. The courses cover both normative and problematic caregiving. An important part of the curriculum is the study of evidence based prevention and intervention programmes to improve caregiving qualities of parents and professional caregivers. You will study key questions that address the most important processes in caregiving, parenting and child development. Questions that are central to Child and Family Science include: * Which early experiences increase the risk of developing behavioral problems? * Do parents' childhood experiences affect the way they raise their children? * What circumstances are important for the development of adopted and foster children? * How do neurobiological processes influence the behavior of parents and children? * What is the role of genetic factors and the interaction between genetic predisposition and environment in child development and in parenting behavior? * How do day care experiences relate to child development? * How can interventions contribute to the improvement of parenting qualities?
