The Research Master's programme in Behavioural Science is a two-year international programme for social scientists who want to discover the how and why behind human behaviour.

Have you always wanted to discover what makes people tick? Do you have questions about human behaviour for which no answers are available yet? Whether you are driven by scientific curiosity or intrigued by the benefits of more accurate diagnosis, or aimed at improving interventions in healthcare or education, then this Research Master's in Behavioural Science is for you.

In order to get admission to this Master's you will need a completed Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Pedagogy, Educational Science, Biology, Artificial Intelligence, Communication Science or another related discipline. Because this Master's programme is a selective programme, candidates with good to excellent grades will have a better chance of being admitted.

Beroepsperspectief / arbeidsmarkt

There are plenty of options open to graduates of the Research Master's in Behavioural Science.The programme provides an excellent basis for a scientific research career and about three-quarters of our graduates have gone on to PhD positions. 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.
Students 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.
