This full-time 30 EC minor is open for students who have successfully completed their first-year programme of a university Bachelor's programme. It is open for students from all disciplines, but particularly interesting for students of Psychobiology, Psychology, Biology, and Bèta-Gamma. International students are welcome as well.

Students are expected to have basic knowledge about evolution and behaviour, such as presented in the book Evolution and Human Behaviour by John Cartwright or Evolutionair Denken by Chris Buskes. The maximum number of students in the minor is 45.

Note: You need to be registered as a UvA student to be able to participate in this minor. Students not enrolled in a regular degree programme at the UvA, but who are interested in taking an UvA course, may need to enrol as a guest student with the Bachelor's programme Psychobiology.
