This master track focuses on adult psychopathology. This field within psychology is studied from a scientific point of view. In this programme, we examine in particular the more complex varieties of psychopathology within an urban context. As we are located in the vibrant city of Rotterdam, this urban environment is often our field laboratory for our research and findings. In this context, complex psychopathological problems,  like personality disorders and addictions often occur.

Every block covers a specific psychological theme. All the activities that you will undertake during this period, i.e. lectures, tutorials, and assignments, are related to this theme. In addition, every course period includes a practical skills training.
