EXAMINE YOUTH ISSUES FROM DIFFERENT DISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVES
Adolescence is a period of major developmental changes. Under which conditions do young people grow up to be confident, social, well-integrated, healthy and happy adults? How do problems emerge? You will learn to observe and examine youth issues by combining input from different social scientific disciplines (psychology, pedagogy, sociology, anthropology) in an interdisciplinary approach. 
The one-year Master's programme in Interdisciplinary Social Science: Youth Studies relates to topics and challenges which are relevant and/or unique to youth such as:
  • Social inequalities and mental and physical health
  • Marginalisation, radicalisation and exclusion
  • Substance use and addiction
  • Antisocial and criminal behaviour
  • Youth culture and popular music
  • Social media use and gaming
  • Interventions and policies to enhance the position of young people
As a Youth Studies student, you will contribute to knowledge regarding youth issues. You will learn to develop ways to prevent or solve problems associated with adolescence and young adulthood, and enhance the quality youth care. By integrating knowledge from different disciplines you will be able to better understand youth issues and to find solutions to youth problems that are beyond the scope of a single discipline or area of research. Additionally, you will gain knowledge about policies and interventions regarding youth issues and develop academic skills to conduct research in the field of youth.
