Mental Health

Would you like to work in mental healthcare? And would you like to learn how to best treat, diagnose and manage different disorders? Or would you like to do research into psychological disorders? Then Mental Health is the programme you’re looking for. In this programme, you’ll gain the practical skills necessary to assess and manage various mental healthcare problems. You’ll also have the opportunity to do a clinical internship, where you’ll obtain essential skills in the areas of diagnostics, interventions and research. Depending on your interests, you can either specialise in adult psychopathology or child and adolescent psychopathology. After obtaining their master’s, many graduates enrol in a post-graduate training programme in mental healthcare or psychotherapy. Others secure a PhD position and pursue a career in science.
