This master's track focuses on adult psychopathology, approached through the lens of scientific psychology. In this programme, we explore the more complex forms of psychopathology as often seen within urban settings. Located in the vibrant city of Rotterdam, our urban environment often serves as the backdrop for our research, including the study of challenges such as addiction and personality disorders.
Throughout the theoretical courses in this master's programme, we delve into the research methods used in clinical psychology to study psychopathology, its causes, and treatment options. This theoretical and methodological knowledge is nurtured in a dynamic learning environment.
Additionally, the programme includes two types of practical skills training (note: you can only choose one):
- Option 1: Clinical skills training. This option teaches fundamental therapeutic skills, including couple therapy and behavioural-cognitive assessment and treatment techniques.
- Option 2: Practical research skills training. Here, you'll learn to address questions related to brain functioning and cognitive-emotional processes. These practical groups involve lab training and assignments, and you'll collaborate with students from the "Brain & Cognition" master track.
If you would like to become a skilled clinical psychologist and acquire up to date knowledge within the mental health field, the clinical psychology masters at EUR is just for you!
A huge draw to EUR is the large international community, and the Clinical Psychology master's track provided many platforms to meet and interact with other students from diverse backgrounds.
I found the master's track Clinical Psychology an enriching experience, as it allowed me to explore topics at the interface between Psychology and Neuroscience, such as addiction, which I find fascinating.
What I liked most about this master programme is that the courses are structured in a way that do not only encourage deep critical thinking but also stimulate personal reflection.
Do you also like to learn more about addiction, personality disorders, several treatments and working as a clinical psychologist? Then I would really recommend joining the Master in Clinical Psychology!
Moreover, most professors and tutors have backgrounds as therapists, which brought such valuable perspectives to the classroom that couldn't be obtained from books.
