If you have studied psychology with an interest in learning, educational sciences or pedagogy this is a great master to further your knowledge and skills
After completing my bachelor’s in psychology at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, I decided to continue at this university with one of their many master programmes. During the Bachelor of Psychology one can specialise in a certain field within the last year. As I chose educational psychology it was the natural next step to do the Master oEducational Psychology: Learning and Performance. This Master provides several interesting courses about education and human learning and they are all conveniently compacted into just one year. We look into topics such as the role of diversity and culture in education as well as innovations and assessment. During the second half of the master you have a choice to do an internship and write your thesis through this, or to do your own research master thesis at the university.
If you have studied psychology with an interest in learning, educational sciences or pedagogy this is a great master to further your knowledge and skills! There are a lot of career and research opportunities arising in the field of education and so the prospects are plenty. This is also quite a small master programme, so the classes and even lectures allow for more intimate teaching and inquiries. During a usual week you will have two classes and one lecture and lots of time for self-study in between. There is also a practical side to the courses where you investigate the more hands-on topics in education. Thus, the choice to do this master was a great one. I managed to gain insight into the new topics within the educational field and into the current research.
