Social and Behavioural Sciences
The Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences brings together high-quality research and outstanding teaching in the disciplines of cultural anthropology, education and child studies, political science, psychology, science and technology studies, as well as in multidisciplinary approaches .
The shared essence of the Faculty’s teaching and research is that it is not pursued at some remove from society, but is instead closely and inextricably connected with it, precisely through the questions and subjects addressed. The Faculty has become a leading international centre for research and teaching in the social and behavioural sciences. The academic staff work with their students on questions relevant to larger society and often with immediate societal impact.
The interconnection of research, teaching, and societal impact is inherent to the Faculty's work.
