How do we choose our friends and partners? Why is it so hard to resist temptations? Do violent video games cause aggression? What motivates us to study? Are we more than just our brains? How does culture shape language? Why do we behave the way we do? If you are fascinated by these intriguing questions then Psychology is the right choice for you!
Why study Psychology?
- At Radboud University, you can can choose to follow the English-taught programme or the bilingual programme (where your first year is taught through Dutch and you gradually build up the number of English-taught courses).
- From the second year on, you may compose your personal learning path, which is designed to fit in with your interests and preferred professional field.
- During the third year of your programme, you may complete part of your programme studying abroad. Do you already see yourself in e.g. Australia, Japan, South-Africa?
- Nijmegen is the place for leading research in the areas of brain & cognition, children & parenting, and behaviour & health.
What will you learn?
In the Bachelor’s programme in Psychology, you will research the behaviour, mind and emotions of humans. You will learn how the brain controls our behaviour and how we develop, from infancy to old age. Moreover, you learn to understand how our environment and the social groups of which we are a part, influence the way we think, feel and act. Are you ready to embark on a programme that will change your beliefs about people, the world and your self-image?
