It is part of an international academic trend that is driving the world’s most renowned universities to develop similar programs.
While focused on Behavioral Science in the broad sense – experimental psychology, cognitive science, behavioral ecology, cognitive anthropology – the program also borrows tools, theoretical reflections and inspiration from neighboring disciplines: sociology, economics, political science, and the philosophy of social science and data sciences.
