From the day a child is born, their family and the culture in which they are raised have a huge impact on their socio-emotional development and psychological adjustment. As the child grows up, their school and networks of friends and peers become more and more influential in their development. The two-year Master's programme in Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DaSCA) gives you the theoretical and methodological background to analyse this development. The programme focuses on both normal and abnormal development processes. Explicit attention is given to the study of interventions and risk factors in children's and adolescent's cognitive and social-emotional development and adjustment.

Waarom aan de UU?

The Keuzegids Master (a highly regarded Dutch ranking of Master's programmes) ranked Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence at Utrecht University as the best in its field in the Netherlands for three consecutive years (2015, 2016 and 2017). The programme represents an opportunity to study under the supervision of leading experts in the field. We admit no more than 20 students each year, which ensures plenty of interaction within the group and between students and teachers.
