About Social Sciences
The Faculty of Social Sciences is a faculty of Radboud University. People and society form the focus of our work. In that framework we look at themes such as the human psyche and behaviour, artificial intelligence, education and upbringing, communication, society and culture.
In line with the university strategy 'A Significant Impact', the Faculty of Social Sciences has developed a faculty strategy with spearheads and ambitions for the coming years.
The Faculty Board determines the direction the faculty as a whole will take. That direction is shaped in dialogue with the Faculty Joint Meeting (FGV) in which both staff and students are represented.
