What does it take for people to trust new technologies? How can you promote healthy lifestyles, and take care of mental health? What causes (and prevents) criminal behaviour? And how do people process information? In tackling today’s challenges, from health crises to criminality to rapid advances in digital technologies, an in-depth psychological understanding of human cognition and behaviour is indispensable.

The one-year, English-taught Master’s in Psychology at the University of Twente (UT) will give you insights into various fields of psychology, enabling you to influence human behaviour in today’s digitalised, 21st-century society. You will build your expertise within one of the five unique specialisations. After graduation, you could pursue a career in many different fields. Where you might work, highly depends on your specialisation. One might equip you to become a psychologist, whereas another prepares you for a role as a policymaker, adviser or researcher in all kinds of sectors (e.g. government, public health, health care, education). We even have graduates working as teachers within higher education or usability specialists at all kinds of (high-tech) companies!
