The Faculty of Social Sciences is one of the largest faculties at Radboud University Nijmegen. The faculty’s ambition is to become one of the top social science institutes in Europe, providing high-quality research and study programmes that rank among the best in the Netherlands. In close cooperation with the research institutes, the faculty offers six high-ranking programmes to approximately 2,200 students: the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Psychology, the Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in Artificial Intelligence, and the Research Master’s programmes in Behavioural Science and Cognitive Neuroscience. The Behavioural Science Institute (BSI), one of the research instituted of the Faculty of Social Sciences, received excellent ratings in a recent evaluation. Its mission is to conduct top-level research on the fundamental principles and processes that govern human behaviour. In addition to this fundamental aim (to understand behaviour), we aim at societal relevance (to influence behaviour). The BSI’s PhD students are trained and supervised at the BSI Graduate School (officially recognized by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research).
