Social Influence is an English-taught Master's track offered by the Department of Social Psychology.
Many organisations and companies benefit from effectively influencing the behaviour of citizens or consumers: Politicians try to win votes, advertising agencies try to increase sales of a particular product, and municipalities try to discourage cycling in pedestrian areas. But what is the best way to approach this?
Social Influence is an English-taught Master's track offered by the Department of Social Psychology.
Why are some advertising campaigns effective and others are not?
How do we encourage fewer people to cycle in pedestrian areas?
How do we study the effectiveness of measures to prevent tax evasion?
An evidence-based approach
For many years intuition, experience, and creativity were decisive factors when designing interventions in human behaviour. However, this did not always lead to effective interventions. A famous example of this concerns a unique forest in the United States: a sign was put up at the entrance informing people that a lot of petrified wood had gone missing as a result of vandalism and theft. However, this intervention actually led to more of the wood being stolen (Cialdini et al., 2006). Closer to home there also are examples of well-known campaigns which are not always the most effective: a billboard with an image of Miffy proved to be more effective at increasing road safety than the “wordt geen slaaprijder” (don’t be a drowsy driver) campaign....
This Master's programme combines theory with practical applications, with an open eye on the possibilities to use modern technology (e.g., e-health). It combines elements
Almost all children hate smoking, yet about a quarter of young adults take up smoking. What changed in-between childhood and adulthood and what can we do to prevent this behaviour?
Similar questions can be asked for binge drinking, problematic use of drugs, and activities that started out as innocent fun, such as gaming, but that have become addictive. Further, overweight and obesity, even in young children, is one of the most important health problems in the western world with an enormous socio-economic impact. What can we do about that?
Psychology: Development and Health - smoking and drinking
Another important topic for health is the role of stress in the development of these behaviours, as stress is widely acknowledged as one of the key contributors in developing addictive behaviours, and obesity. Also, stress is related to drop out of work and decreases in general well-being....

Apply knowledge from the field of Brain and Cognitive Sciences to answer important societal questions. Students learn to set up applied experiments, and to translate empirical findings into practical advice.
The brain and mind
Society's interest in the brain and mind has exploded in recent years. This is due in part to increased scientific knowledge about the relationship between cognitive functions, like attention and memory, and performance in every-day life, as well as to technological advances that have provided unprecedented insight into the brain’s workings and new methods that allow continuous monitoring of behavior or cognitive and bodily functions (e.g., internet, wearables, smartphone apps). The primary focus in the curriculum of the master track Brain and Cognition in Society is on how theoretical and methodological knowledge from the field of brain and cognition can contribute to answering societal questions....

Understanding data about human behaviour is an important and valuable skill in today's society. Companies, public institutions and governmental organizations — they all use the continuous stream of big data to describe and predict human behaviour.
Behavioural Data Science
The police use data to predict the risk of burglary by area and week of the year, insurance companies adjust their prices based on client data, and schools adjust educational programmes based on what is known about student progress.
Leveraging the full potential of these massive amounts of behavioural data towards these goals greatly benefits from a thorough understanding of data science techniques and human behaviour modelling. The master's track Behavioural Data Science aims to combine these two. The programme assumes knowledge of psychology, research methodology, and applied statistics at an undergraduate level, and continues with training on advanced (big) data techniques, academic skills, as well as practical and professional skills. ...
