Programme structure

The Master’s programme in Behavioural Science is taught at the Faculty of Social Sciences and is part of the graduate school of the Behavioural Science Institute. It has a course load of 120 EC* (two years).

The programme consists of 4 types of courses, essential for a researcher; Theory, Methods & Statistics, Professional Development, and Research Experience. All these components are mandatory, but there is ample choice for students to create their own programme that will give them a unique profile based on their own professional and academic interests.

Career opportunities

There are plenty of options open to graduates of the Research Master’s in Behavioural Science:

- Scientific research career (academia)
The programme provides an excellent basis for a scientific research career and about three-quarters of the graduates have gone on to PhD positions.

- Societal research career
The graduates have also gone on to do research for governmental organisations, research institutes such as Kentalis and Praktikon, or research departments within organisations such as TNO and Cito.

- Scientific practitioner
We accommodate those students who have both clinical and research aspirations. With hard work, it could possible to follow an additional Master’s programme like Psychology or Educational Science (in Dutch Pedagogiek) and/or do a clinical internship in order to get the necessary Dutch diagnostic certification. However, this work must be done on top of the EC of this research programme and that means you need to accept some delay in your studies. If this interests you, we advise you to read more about this in the course guide.

- More
Of course, this Master’s programme does not close other doors. Students with a Research Master’s degree are also highly sought after by (commercial) businesses and organisations because of their analytical skills, statistical knowledge and in-depth understanding of human behaviour. Other careers, such as policy maker, manager, journalist, etc. are certainly within reach.
