Placement procedure-

After this short introductory course students will have an overview of the full width of research in the Behavioural Science Institute, will have an overview of the actual challenges and promises in each specific research field, and will have some ideas about how to discuss theoretical considerations that inform the research being done in behavioral science.

The course consists of three parts: (1) a series of lectures on the seven research programs of the BSI and on the underlying research philosophy; (2) an assignment in which students work in small groups of three or four students on the preparation of a critical question they should like to see discussed by the research group leaders; (3) a panel discussion in which the student questions will be addressed.

There is no exam. Students will receive 1 EC for handing in a question and for participating.
