About

The Master’s programme in Social and Health Psychology programme at Utrecht University  investigates the social and health-related aspects of behavioural regulation.

Overview

 We will address not only basic psychological research of how people regulate their own behaviour, we also will examine how such basic knowledge can inform interventions and policies to support people in regulating their behaviour for the benefit of social interaction and health.

During your studies, you will acquire basic knowledge and explore leading theories and concepts of behavioural regulation and their interconnections with various fields of study. We will also devote considerable attention to advance your skills in methods and statistics. You will be trained to use and develop cutting-edge research tools through participation in ongoing projects, where you will gain research experience in the study of behavioural regulation.

Career Prospects

This programme prepares you for a career in research in academia (PhD training), research institutes, or at governmental or commercial organisations. You will also be prepared for a non-scientific career path. Highly qualified researchers are in great demand, therefore career prospects are very good.
