minor Methodology & Statistics
A small percentage of Bachelor students find the Methodology and Statistics courses the most interesting courses.
We, the staff of the Department of Methodology and Statistics at the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences, share this interest and have developed the minor Methodology and Statistics to train promising students to become researchers in Methodology and Statistics within the social and behavioral sciences. We are enthusiastic lecturers, teaching small groups of like-minded students. During the two-year, English-taught program, you will follow state-of-the-art courses and be involved hands-on in our research. Each student is assigned a personal adviser offering help with respect to choosing internal traineeships, the international traineeship, and topics of the first-year paper and the Master's thesis.
We have great expertise across a broad range of topics, ranging from research methods to mathematical statistics. We develop and apply new psychometric methods for constructing reliable and valid measurement scales, and statistical and data-analytic methods for analyzing categorical and continuous data from longitudinal or comparative research in relation to a causal model
minor Social Sciences
The minor studies relations and interaction between agents at distinct levels of analysis - ethnic groups, families, social networks, teams, organizations, and networks of organizations.
The focus is on the differential effects of macro-social, institutional and organizational variables on distinct aspects of social behaviors or agents.
The Research Master in general addresses the topic of the individual in its social context. In the minor social sciences, which is driven to a large extent by the sociological framework, the meso and macro contexts are central. Examples of such contexts are work organizations, schools, neighborhoods, and voluntary organizations.
The leading question is how such contexts influence the way individuals think and act and, in turn, how individuals help shape and change the context in which they are embedded. Examples of questions that can be studied are: How does cohesion in a neighborhood affect crime and other deviant behavior? Why are certain work organizations better able in motivating their employees than other work organizations? Why do students in ethnically mixed schools perform worse than students in homogeneous schools?
