The Faculty of Social Sciences
(FSS) is one of Radboud University's seven faculties. It is a large and ambitious faculty with approximately 5,400 students and more than 800 staff members. In the faculty, education and research are valued equally and, are above all, intertwined. Other ambitions in the faculty strategy
include: strengthening the Bachelor's/Master's/Post-Master's chain; interdisciplinary work in education and research; an increased focus on sustainability; reducing workload; promoting team science; careful recognition and rewards; a good personnel policy, and promoting a good work and study environment.
The faculty has three research institutes: Radboud Social Cultural Research
(RSCR), the Behavioural Science Institute
(BSI), and the Donders Centere for Cognition
(DCC). Faculty education is accommodated in the Educational Institute of Social Sciences
, which includes programmes in psychology, artificial intelligence, pedagogical sciences and educational science, communication science, sociology, anthropology and developmental sociology as well as our postgraduate education at the Radboud Center for Social Sciences.
We want to get the best out of science, others and ourselves. Why? Because this is what the world around us desperately needs. Leading research and education make an indispensable contribution to a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. This is what unites the more than 24,000 students and 5,600 employees at Radboud University. And this requires even more talent, collaboration and lifelong learning. You have a part to play!
