The Master's track Evolution of Behaviour and Mind builds on the internationally renowned research of the Institute of Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics (IBED), the Psychology Research Institute (PRI) and the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and Political Decision Making (CREED).


The Master's programme in Evolution of Behavior and Mind has a student population of 20 - 30 students each year, with many nationalities and backgrounds. Courses are done in small groups and during the Master's projects students participate in regular meetings to present their work and discuss this with their peers. This results in an informal and international classroom.
