What methods are available for treating post-traumatic stress disorder? How effective is a short-term therapy delivered online? What is the relationship between heredity and bullying? Why do some people—and not others—lead healthy lifestyles? How you develop, what you observe, what decisions you make: everything is behaviour. That behaviour is influenced by where and how we grow up and the predispositions passed on to us by our parents. The interplay between all these factors shapes who we are, what we do, and how we view the world.
Asking questions and listening to the answers—really listening—is second nature to you. You are curious and open-minded. You want to know how things work. In the Bachelor’s programme in Psychology, you take a scientific approach to unravelling the challenges we face as people. The programme is demanding and the lectures call for active participation. You are constantly challenged to get the best out of yourself and to reflect critically on your observations and opinions. In the first two years you acquire a solid foundation of knowledge, and subsequently choose the specialisation that suits you best: Clinical Psychology; Social and Organisational Psychology; Biological and Cognitive Psychology; or Psychopathology, Prevention, and Health. Everything is focused on your future—and as a psychologist, your future is as versatile as it is bright.
The lectures are given by inspiring experts and, in the tutorials, you explore the subject matter in more depth. The English language plays an important role in the programme. This programme is entirely in English, but you can also choose to follow the standard Psychologie programme where part of the curriculum is given in Dutch.
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
