About the programme

This new Bachelor’s programme, offered at the Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences (TSB), prepares students for managing projects that address present-day societal issues. Also known as “wicked problems”, these issues will cover topics such as global warming, sustainable consumption, the use of energy and renewable energy, and poverty and inequality.

Students will learn to approach these issues from a multinational and interdisciplinary perspective using academic knowledge and a broad range of practical tools from the social sciences. In this way a deeper understanding of the underlying processes of these “wicked problems” can be gained. Students will also be able to explore the issues through the viewpoints of different stakeholders and target groups, helping them better assess and manage the problems.
