Deze opleiding

The Research Master's in Behavioural Science is a two years selective Master's where you will learn to become an top-notch researcher.

At Radboud University, we believe that a multidisciplinary approach is needed to get the best understanding of human behaviour. We combine knowledge and research methods from the fields of psychology, educational sciences and communication science. These disciplines are not taught separately but instead are brought together in most of our courses, making our approach unique.

Half the programme consists of research experience. There are many issues you could tackle and a large research staff you could work with. For example, there are over fifty faculty members at the Behavioural Science Institute. The institute has internationally renowned researchers with expertise in a very wide range of topics. And that's not counting the other top scientists we invite to give workshops.

studeren in het buitenland
During the second year of your Master's programme, there is the possibility to go abroad as a part of your research project. Students go abroad as part of their internship in the 2nd year, which runs from September till July. The duration (usually between 2-6 months) and timing (early or late in the internship) depends on the specific topic. Spending time at a university or research institute abroad is a really valuable learning experience for students.
honours-/excellence program



This programme gives you the chance to carry out a research project or internship at an internationally renowned laboratory or research institute. You will work with top researchers in your field: a perfect opportunity to prepare for a career in science.

Na de studie

Unsplashed background img 2
The programme provides an excellent basis for a scientific research career and about three-quarters of our graduates have gone on to PhD positions.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

The career prospects of a graduate of Behavioural Science are good; almost 100% of our alumni have a job. Our graduates have also gone on to do research for governmental organisations, research institutes such as Kentalis and Praktikon or research departments within organisations such as TNO and Cito.
Of course, this Master's programme does not close other doors. Students with a Research Master's degree are also highly sought after by (commercial) businesses and organisations because of their analytical skills, statistical knowledge and in-depth understanding of human behaviour. Other careers, such as policy maker, manager, journalist, etc. are certainly within reach.
