The master’s in Mental Health combines theory of psychiatric disorders with a large amount of practical training. You can do a clinical internship at a mental healthcare institute or take supplementary master classes. After you’ve obtained your degree, you can continue on to a post-doctoral training programme and become a mental health psychologist or a psychotherapist. But you’ll also get all the training you need to become a PhD candidate. Other career paths include positions as a therapist, diagnostician, consultant or advisor in (special) education or working with the mentally disabled.
As a master’s student in Politics and Society, you will gain insights into contemporary politics and will get a better understanding of the professional role that you can play, not only in politics but also in the government, media, education and research. You will analyse debates and new developments in politics from a wide range of perspectives. You will not become a political scientist, historian, philosopher or sociologist, but a cultural scientist who combines approaches from all of these disciplines.
