Interested in studying theory and history of psychology?

The University of Groningen has a 1-year English-taught master program: «Reflecting on Psychology.» This master encourages students to study the field of Psychology itself (using perspectives drawn from history, philosophy, and the sociology of science), and to explore its relations with other parts of science and society.
We aim to attract a select group of top students who will be supervised individually and encouraged to come up with their own research topics. Students from Reflecting on Psychology will become skilled in writing for different audiences, qualitative analysis, and the tools of rigorous reflection. They will learn how to write publishable essays, lead meaningful discussions, and give interesting lectures. Indeed, by examining psychology’s past and its present — as well as its issues and its boundaries — we aim to give students access to its future.
For more information on deadlines, admission requirements, and the content of the program, please have a look at our website  or contact our program coordinator: Markus Eronen (
Tuition fees for students from the EU are the same as for Dutch students. For non-EU students, unfortunately, they are substantially higher. Application dates are different too: April 1 for non-EU students (no kidding), and May 1 for EU and Dutch students.
