Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon and extends and/or enhances that typically associated with Bachelor’s level, and that provides a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context:
- Having demonstrated advanced knowledge and understanding of: important national and international, contemporary theories, models, and issues in the social and behavioural sciences, classic and contemporary theoretical models and concepts of human behaviour, and key issues in the area of specialization.

Can apply their knowledge and understanding and problem-solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study; have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity:
- Having demonstrated the comprehensive ability to: apply insights and findings, especially where practical applications have the potential to also inform theoretical issues, in original ways to questions of scientific research and of policy both in disciplinary and in broader, interdisciplinary contexts.
- develop and implement interventions that are aimed at changing behaviour at the individual or group level.

Can formulate judgements on the basis of incomplete or limited information, that rather include reflection on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgements:
- Having demonstrated the ability to: select and apply appropriate data collection methods and data-analytical methods.
- reflect on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of knowledge and judgements, as well as on social and ethical implications of policy decisions and intervention programmes in order to become an independent researcher, future leader, or innovator.

Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously:
- Having demonstrated the ability to: communicate (orally and in writing) conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist (e.g., scientists) and non-specialist audiences (e.g., executives, policymakers, journalists) clearly and unambiguously, including the underpinnings as well as limitations of the conclusions.
- integrate theory and quantitative empirical research (‘theory-guided empirical research’) into a scientific report, which is comparable to the level of a publishable research paper.
- formulate policy implications of scientific research, taking into account the limitations of the information and scientific insight on which the practical recommendations are based.

Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous:
- Having demonstrated: the skills required for further international study in a largely self-directed or autonomous manner.
- the ability to reflect on the implications of one’s work for the development of theories in the behavioural and social sciences and related fields, such as economics and medicine.
- the skills to search for information and to manage and archive data.
- adherence to the principles and procedures concerning integrity in scientific research.
- respect to cultural, individual, and role differences due to age, gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, language, and socioeconomics.
Omschrijving In the traineeship students join an ongoing research project, in which he or she is given a specific task and is actively involved in the broader research project. Before the start, a traineeship plan must be specified, which will be evaluated by the specialization coordinator. The traineeship is concluded with a traineeship thesis. In the case of an internal traineeship, there will be at least one supervisor. In the case of an external traineeship there will be two supervisors. The final responsibility lies with the internal supervisor. Students who want to qualify for the post-master programme for health psychologists will have the option to do a Clinical Science Traineeship of 20 EC, including 5 EC worth of single case methodology. In this case the student will also conduct a single case treatment study and writes a single case report. This takes place at one of several approved mental health facility positions in the Netherlands or abroad. There will be three supervisors: an internal supervisor, an external supervisor and a single case supervisor.
