The Faculty of Social Sciences offers English taught Bachelor's programmes in Artificial Intelligence and Psychology. The Faculty also offers several English taught Master's and Research Master's degree programmes. The Research Master's degree programmes are specially designed programmes and are mostly organised by research institutes. These programmes focus exclusively on research, training top students to be researchers.

There are many international courses and programmes in which Dutch and foreign students participate together. The different backgrounds of those who study and teach at the University help to reinforce our common objective: to achieve the highest possible standard of education and research.


The Faculty of Social Sciences' research is focused on:

  • Cognitive processes
  • The interaction between individual and society

In addition to fundamental scientific research, the faculty attaches great importance to applied research. The latter type of research has been incorporated into the institute for social services: the Academic Centre for Social Sciences that works closely together with social institutions in society at large. 

The Faculty of Social Sciences has been subdivided into three research institutes:

  • Donders Centre for Cognition (DCC)
  • Behavioural Science Institute(BSI)
  • Nijmegen Institute for Social Cultural Research (NISCO)
