UNIQUE APPROACH

A unique aspect of the Clinical Psychology track is the focus on the many shades of grey between health and disorder. Here, the attention is trained on both the psychologist's traditional role in treating actual mental health disorders and his or her role in handling common but less clear mental health issues resulting from major life events (grief and trauma), for example.

The Health Promotion track is unique in that it connects state-of-the-art insights into self-regulation with techniques and programmes to promote health and prevent illness. Improved insights into how people regulate their health behaviour enable better interventions to be developed. Another unique aspect is the accent on the use of the environment to change health behaviour, such as in the course on nudges (subtle environmental cues that stimulate people to make the healthy choice). This course is the only one of its kind in the Netherlands.

curriculum

The Clinical Psychology track.
This track prepares you for a job within the (individually oriented) healthcare field (mental and somatic) which matches the profile of the healthcare psychologist.

The Health Promotion track.
This track prepares you for the more collective aspects of health. Prevention, group and environmental interventions and healthcare policy are emphasised.

Internship and Master's thesis.
Regardless of which track you choose, you will complete an internship and write a Master's thesis. The internship is always outside the university. While writing your thesis, you will gain considerable experience with designing and carrying out a research plan and reporting your results. For example in a scientific article.

job perspective

This gives you an excellent starting position in a junior level job. Your career prospects are partly determined by your specialisation. The clinical master's degree offers you the opportunity to acquire the NIP's basic certificate in psycho-diagnostics (BAPD). You can also apply for different postmaster degree programmes (Healthcare psychology; in Dutch: GZ-psycholoog) or pursue a doctoral degree.
