Course description

Are you an excellent student and interested in conducting scientific research in the social and behavioural sciences? Then this is the Master's course for you! The Research Master's programme provides talented young researchers from all over the world with the tools they need to conduct fundamental scientific research in the field of social and behavioural sciences.

This course offers an interdisciplinary approach by integrating the different perspectives offered by social psychology, sociology, organisation sciences and methodology to the study of human social behaviour.

During this two-year programme you will follow state-of-the-art courses, led by the best researchers in the field. You will be involved hands-on in their research area, actively participating in innovative projects and internships.

This Research Master in Social and Behavioural Sciences offers one major in Individual in Social Context and a choice from one of three minors in:

  1. Social Psychology
  2. Social Sciences
  3. Methodology and Statistics

This master's is challenging and intensive. For that reason, the number of places available on this programme is limited to 30, ensuring that only talented applicants, with strong analytical skills, a good academic record, and with a strong motivation for scientific research, are successful. Does this describe you? If so, click here to see whether you meet our requirements and for further information about the application process.

The major 'Individual in Social Context' focuses on individual behaviour in three types of social contexts; social psychology, sociology, and organisation studies . Each context is studied separately, but also in connection to the other contexts.

The three contexts are studied in three different content courses - each of which takes one context as its focus and relates it to the other two - and two methodology courses, which connect the contexts and studies them from both a content perspective and a methodological perspective. In addition, the major also offers two statistics courses and a skills course - writing scientific articles and presenting research. See the the programme structure (Major in Social and Behavioural Sciences) for details of all courses to be followed.

In their first year, all students start with the major 'Individual in Social Context'. They choose one of the three minors at the moment of application.
