The programme focuses on providing in-depth knowledge of major fields in social psychology by emphasising general principles underlying social behaviour. If you choose to study Social Psychology at VU Amsterdam, you’ll take a truly interdisciplinary, integrative approach. While social psychology is the main focus, the programme actively bridges the field of social psychology with knowledge and insights from adjacent disciplines.
In your first year, you’ll take four theoretical courses, including one elective course of your choice. You’ll also take two expert workshops, three academic skills courses, and you’ll carry out a research project on a topic of your own interest.
