University of Amsterdam is the only university that offers the international Master's track Youth at Risk.
The University of Amsterdam (UvA) is the only university which offers a Youth at Risk international Master's track. This Master's track will give you the opportunity to work on preventative youth care in a professional way.
There is a real need for preventative support for young people within the family, in the peer context and in schools. The Youth at Risk Master's track teaches you to solve pedagogic issues in various professional fields in an academically sound way. Special attention is paid to situations in which action has to be taken by educators, institutions or authorities to increase young people's opportunities for development and to prevent, identify or solve problems faced by children and young people.
During the Master's programme, you will learn to develop professional recommendations on both policy and practical levels. These recommendations will actually be implemented in practice. This will enable you to ensure that problems such as educational disadvantage, child abuse and juvenile delinquency are identified and dealt with in good time. The Youth at Risk Master's track is part of the Pedagogical Sciences Master's programme.
