Psychology

University of Twente

Master Postgraduate Enschede

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary What makes people act the way they do? And how can we use psychological expertise to solve real-life problems? You will tackle these questions and more in the Master’s programme in Psychology.
Course description During the Master’s in Psychology, you will not only examine how people behave but also acquire the knowledge and understanding of psychological theories to analyse behaviour systematically. You will design effective and workable solutions to social issues, using technological applications where possible. These might include computer games that enhance learning skills, online healthcare interventions or iPhone apps to report neighbourhood crime. After your studies, you will have ample opportunity to prove your worth to society as an expert in human behaviour. The position and the sector you work in will partly depend on your Master’s specialization. Psychologists are perhaps most closely associated with the healthcare profession but you might easily find yourself working as a consultant, project manager or coach in business, education, science or the government sector.
Study subjects The programme offers five one-of-a-kind specializations in the field of psychology: * Human Factors & Engineering Psychology; * Conflict, Risk & Safety; * Learning Sciences; * Health Psychology; * Positive Psychology & Technology (Clinical Psychology: in Dutch, only for Dutch (speaking) students).
Course objectives In the Master’s programme Psychology you will examine and understand human behaviour, providing you with insight into current psychological theories. Furthermore, you will learn to design effective and workable interventions to solve social problems to influence human behaviour.
