About this course

What methods are available for treating post-traumatic stress disorder? How effective is a short-term therapy delivered online? What is the relationship between heredity and bullying? Why do some people—and not others—lead healthy lifestyles? How you develop, what you observe, what decisions you make: everything is behaviour. That behaviour is influenced by where and how we grow up and the predispositions passed on to us by our parents. The interplay between all these factors shapes who we are, what we do, and how we view the world. Asking questions and listening to the answers—really listening—is second nature to you. You are curious and open-minded. You want to know how things work. In the Bachelor’s programme in Psychology, you take a scientific approach to unravelling the challenges we face as people. The programme is demanding and the lectures call for active participation. You are constantly challenged to get the best out of yourself and to reflect critically on your observations and opinions. In the first two years you acquire a solid foundation of knowledge, and subsequently choose the specialisation that suits you best: Clinical Psychology; Social and Organisational Psychology; Biological and Cognitive Psychology; or Psychopathology, Prevention, and Health. Everything is focused on your future—and as a psychologist, your future is as versatile as it is bright. The lectures are given by inspiring experts and, in the tutorials, you explore the subject matter in more depth. The English language plays an important role in the programme. This programme is entirely in English, but you can also choose to follow the standard Psychologie programme where part of the curriculum is given in Dutch.

So you’ve graduated as a junior psychologist, now what? Most Bachelor’s graduates choose to continue their studies, but you can also start working as a junior psychologist at many different companies. You have a broad understanding of the different fields within psychology and have insight into individual differences and understand how people and groups influence one another. What’s more, you can identify thought and behavioural patterns that have become self-evident to others. During your studies you explored individual and group behaviour in all its facets. Why do people do what they do? And where does that behaviour come from? With the insights you gain, you can help others to broaden their horizons and change their behaviour for the better. Here, you come to understand that you are part of a greater whole, and your presence always influences what does or doesn’t happen.

VU Amsterdam is known for its expertise in the interaction between genes and the environment; in your second year you will be learning how this interaction influences behaviour. In addition, you can follow one of the three ‘pre-minors’: subjects that provide an introduction to the minor that you will select in the third year.

Clinical Psychology is for those students who intend to work as a therapist here in the Netherlands. Psychopathology, Prevention, and Health, provides a broader clinical picture, Social and Organisational Psychology focuses on the behaviour of people in organisations and society. Biological and Cognitive Psychology revolves around the biological and cognitive processes that play a role in behaviour and health. Finally, you will write your bachelor’s thesis.
