student Janet Hofman
What I like about this track is that it not only teaches you about all kinds of youth-related issues, but also how these issues can be raised to a higher level based on policy and research.

My name is Janet Hofman and I am following the Master's programme in 'Youth0-21, Society and Policy'.

I have a background in Human Resource Management and I was curious whether I could handle a Master’s. I first followed the pre-Master’s programme in SPO, a combination of Pedagogy and Educational Sciences, and after that I had a choice between the Master’s tracks in ‘Ethics of Education’ and ‘Youth0-21, Society and Policy’...
This involves young people themselves as well as the people that supervise and guide them.The first semester comprises course units such as ‘Conceptions of youth in policy and research’, ‘Innovations in youth care and education’ and ‘Child abuse and neglect’, after which in the second semester you follow a placement, complete a placement assignment and write your thesis. My thesis is about how secondary-school pupils are prepared for the labour market or further education.The programme is rather broad. I enjoy the variety in topics, and the lecturers also give you a lot of freedom to come up with your own ideas. You can delve more deeply into the topics that you are particularly interested in. In addition, the group is small, so you get to know each other quickly. The lecturers are very passionate about their subject, and they really know a lot about it – they are firmly grounded in the field.After I graduate, I think I might like to work as a policy adviser dealing with youth issues, and I would also like to start up a company that helps young people choose what they want to study. This way I want to continue to create a link between practice and policy!

student Richard Boer
The things I learned in the first few months of theory worked well for my internship. I was very well prepared.

Hi, my name is Richard Boer and I am 49 years old. I study the master's degree programme 'Youth, Society and Policy'. Originally I am a system therapist and I am also a teacher at the 'Hogeschool Leeuwarden'.

I wanted to do a master’s degree and then I heard about this new study programme. I have been to an information event twice and based on that I made my choice. Especially the fact that you are working with policies greatly encouraged me.
I am very pleased with the structure of the study programme...
It leans towards Sociology but it has also something to do with Education (Onderwijskunde). We think about issues like ‘How do you develop a project in an organization?’, and ‘A new method will be introduced, but how should this be addressed?’
With some fellow students we have produced a policy piece. That was very nice to do!
After a few months of theory, your internship will start. I am currently doing an internship at the municipality of Leeuwarden. During such an internship you will get to know an organization at the policy level. I learn what it is like to work with different parties who all want something from, in this case, the municipality of Leeuwarden. Very interesting! In addition, the things I learned in the first few months of theory worked well for my internship. I was very well prepared.
This year, only ten people study ‘Youth, Society and Policy’. I like that very much, because you have a lot of contact with your fellow students and your teachers. Moreover, it is an international study. This year we had two students from Germany and Spain. In this way, you learn something about the policy in other countries and how they shape it. The language is English, and I like that too. My English has therefore improved quite a lot during the past few months.

"I participated in a project about LGBTQ youth. How can you provide information at schools so that everyone is accepted as he or she is? Together with my groupmates, I wrote a plan for that."

Before I started this Master's degree programme, I studied Educational Sciences and there I missed the practical aspect of the field. I wanted to be able to apply what I had learnt. So I attended the Master's information events. The Master's programme Youth, Society and Policy was just new and it promised to provide the link I was looking for, the link between practice and science. In addition, policy was addressed. That was important to me.

In this Master’s degree programme you will learn about youth care in general and the policy that is involved...
You will not be tested by written examinations, but by projects and essays. I appreciate that. I participated in a project about LGBTQ youth. How can you provide information at schools so that everyone is accepted as he or she is? Together with my groupmates, I wrote a plan for that. That kind of project is very concrete, and leads to a tangible result that you can be proud of.
After the theory part, you will do a work placement and write your thesis. I am currently doing a placement at Yorneo, in Drenthe, an organization which provides all kinds of assistance with regard to raising children. There I did my placement at foster care. I would like to work at in foster care later. A place where you are really involved with people.
I think it’s very important to do things you care about and that you find worthwhile. That’s really the case with this Master’s degree programme. You have room to pursue your interests, and dive in deeply. A bonus is that my English has greatly improved, so that I can analyse texts critically now.

Anne Heslinga, 22 years old, master student.

"This course gives you the conceptual and practical tools to make things better for children and young people."

docent Mónica López López
It's not just about learning the best research evidence, it's about learning how to use it appropriately.

This knowledge will help our students to choose the most effective policies and practices in their future jobs.
Pauline Schreuder
"Our learning communities provide excellent opportunities for discussing policies and research, and for peer learning by sharing knowledge and experiences while working on assignments."

docent Tina Kretschmer
Because the lecturers on this program are also intensively involved in internationally recognized research, our teaching is always informed by the latest findings.
