Social and Behavioural Sciences
Making an impact on society and contributing to the development of truly global social sciences – that’s the aim of the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences (FSW). Whether the field is cultural anthropology, education and child studies, political science, psychology, or science and technology studies, we conduct top-level research and provide stimulating education.
At FSW, education and research go hand in hand and are also intensively linked to society. We draw on topical issues from both the Netherlands and the international community to stimulate the curiosity of students and researchers.
We believe that the full potential of the social sciences can only be realised by opening up our community and knowledge. We feel part of a bigger picture and challenge ourselves to constantly adapt to changing circumstances. In this way we can increasingly be of direct value to society.
