Course content

Developmental Psychopathology in Education and Child Studies (Research)

The Research Master’s programme in Developmental Psychopathology in Education and Child Studies at Leiden University is designed to teach students to independently derive a research question from the existing insights in the discipline of Education and Child Studies and, through conducting scientific research, contribute to the development of new fundamental theoretical insights or well-grounded practical theories, which have the primary aim of advancing the Educational Sciences as an academic discipline.

The programme is concluded with the preparation of an article which, in terms of its level, would be ready for submission to a refereed international scientific journal.

The Research Master’s programme trains students for functions in the public or private sector in which advanced research skills and substantial practical research experience are among the qualifications required (research agencies or research departments in businesses or governmental organisations). At the same time the programme is a solid preparation for functions or educational courses in which scientific research is performed for an academic dissertation and doctoral degree.
