Professional masters
NHL Stenden offers twenty master programmes (also called ‘professional masters’) in The Netherlands. The twentieth master course will be introduced September 1st: the master programme Design Driven Innovation. A professional master distinguishes itself from a university master by focussing on practical assignments and practically-oriented research. As a result, there is an excellent connection with the work field. There are several internationally recognised master titles: Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MSc), Master of Education (MEd), and Master of Social Work (MSW). NHL Stenden notices the increasing demand for professional master’s degrees and is continually working with the professional field to offer a broader range of programmes.
