Program and courses

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of the strengths and virtues that enable individuals and communities to thrive, driven from the belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives. Positive Psychology is focused on positive aspects of human functioning.

You will learn how to deal with concepts such as positive development and growth, creativity, happiness, talents, character strengths, adaptive power, psychological well-being, and factors which enable individuals and systems to achieve these concepts.

You will create a different vision on individual, personal life, health, education, entrepreneurship and society in general, by paying attention to the positive aspects of individuals and systems and how these can contribute to society.

During this program, assessment and interventions are aimed at determining strengths and talents of young people and adults. Interventions aim to identify and develop these strengths and talents so that behavioral change and improvement can take place.

This new program can also be considered a broadening of the three existing clinical tracks (all Dutch-taught: Clinical Psychology, Clinical Forensic Psychology, Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology), because children, adolescents and adults with psychological problems also have healthy and strong features which can be strengthened.

This master’s track does not provide the qualification required for postdoctoral follow-up training, but students who wish to obtain such a qualification can follow an individual program after obtaining the master's degree.

Career prospects

Positive psychologists can be employed in the broad domain of schools, companies and mental health services.

Schools and universities are paying attention to talent, motivation, success and strengths of individual pupils/students and teachers. In order to realize this positive approach, expertise is needed which can be offered by people who have been educated and trained in designing and guiding change processes on an individual, interpersonal and organizational level (e.g. coaches, counsellors, consultants and trainers).

Companies are increasingly in need of experts who can help them to recruit the right people in the right positions and companies search for methods to gain insight into the talents and strengths of employees in all age categories. More and more organizations want to offer workplaces to people with disabilities. For this reason, experts are needed who use a different and much more positive approach to employee talents and functioning.
