Faculty of Behavioural Sciences

Nothing is more international than BEHAVIOUR! Everywhere people act, are taught to do things better, interact to influence each other's behaviour, and are making decisions about tools and technology in use. Behavioural scientists are interested in the how and why of differences in behaviour, also between countries, cultures and over time. Some want to discover laws of behaviour that apply throughout the world and to all cultures. Every Behavioural Sciences student is an international student. Discover our behavioural research and education in the fields of psychology, communication, educational science, philosophy of science and science communication.

With effect from 1 May 2014 there has been a merger of this faculty and the School of Management and Governance. Both are combined into the new Faculty of Behavioural, Management and Social sciences.
