From minds to society

How are our thoughts, feelings and behaviours shaped by our social environment? And how do we shape that environment with our minds?

Unique and challenging programme
The Research Master’s in Social Psychology at VU Amsterdam focuses on evolution, morality and cooperation. Your research will inform not only the basic aspects of individual-level psychology like genetics and neuroscience, underlying personality, emotion and behaviour. But also more complex, society-wide phenomena like moral and political behaviour within a society. Or even ecological influences on cooperation across societies.

Important dates
The start date of this programme is September 1st.
