Research and analyse human behaviour and wellbeing

Why do people lash out at relief workers during emergencies? How can you help someone who no longer feels life is worth living? Do genes play a role in ADHD or addiction?

The Bachelor in Psychology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam focuses on the intersection between health, behavioural patterns, and ways of thinking. How do these differ from one person to the next, and how we can influence them? 

Human behaviour in all its forms is endlessly fascinating.
