The Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DaSCA) programme focuses on general processes of socialisation and child rearing and on normative developmental pathways. Considerable attention is given to the risk factors involved in the development of children and adolescents with a view to developing treatment strategies and preventive systematic intervention programmes. The programme courses focus on theory and research in development and socialisation in childhood and adolescence, methodology and statistics, and basic academic skills. In the second year students will complete an internship and write their thesis in the form of a draft research article for international publication. Until now about 70% of DaSCA graduates obtained a PhD position within 4 months of graduation, whereas the the other graduates obtained research jobs outside university. Looking for more information?

Waarom aan de Utrecht?
In the national student survey (de Nationale Studenten Enquête, or NSE) in 2014, the DaSCA programme received a mean score of 4.73 on a 5-point scale (1 = very unsatisfied to 5 = very satisfied) and was the best-rated Master's programme at Utrecht University.
All courses and communications are in English, and the programme is designed to allow you to practice advanced English, communication skills while gaining an international perspective on topics related to development and socialisation. Some of the lecturers are from abroad (US, Belgium, Croatia, and Finland) or hold positions abroad (UK), and the programme attracts a number of international students. You will also have the opportunity to visit English-speaking conferences held in the Netherlands and organised by the participating research groups.
- Two general courses on theory and research
- One course on academic skills and methodology and statistics
- Internship and writing a Master's research thesis
One of the courses in this programme is an elective course. The aim of this course is to provide useful additional expertise in selected fields of development and socialisation research, complementing what you have learned in other DaSCA courses. The elective course is chosen individually, according to the specific needs of each individual student and in close consultation with the coordinator. Typically, the elective is a course from another Research Master's programme or from the academic Master's programmes in Clinical Child and Family Studies, Child and Adolescent Psychology, or Youth Studies.

Students with a GPA of 3.4 (or the Dutch equivalent of 7.5) or higher are eligible. Students with a GPA between 3.0 and 3.4 (Dutch equivalent: 7 or better) may be eligible and will have a chance of being selected if their previous studies fit well with the Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolesence programme, according to the programme's Admissions Committee.
This programme has a statistical entry requirement, which entails the following:
- a basic course in introductory statistics including topics such: univariate descriptive statistics, correlation, univariate regression, one-way analysis of variance (both descriptive and inferential) and a basic course in the methodology of behavioural and/or social science research (experimentation, surveys, observational studies);
- knowledge of multivariate analysis tools such as factor analysis, reliability, multiple regression, analysis of variance, dummy variables;
- hands on experience with the tools just mentioned (for example, experience with SPSS).
In total, it is expected that studentes have followed courses totalling approximately 20 EC. If either (2) or (3) is (partly) lacking, this can be remedied in a course of multivariate analysis offered by the Summer School of Utrecht University.
