Graduate School Tilburg School of Social and Behavioral Sciences

In research education TSB offers two programs: a Research Master program and a PhD program. Both programs have different tracks.

The Research Master is intended for the best students in the Social and Behavioral Sciences. The very intensive two year master program enables students to qualify for a PhD position or for a research career outside the university.

Why would I want a PhD degree?
What do you do as an internal PhD student?

Educational requirement

A Master's degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences or a related subject or an equivalent qualification is the minimum requirement. Four year Dutch HBO studies completed before 2002 is also eligible. In all cases the Doctoral Board decides whether the educational requirements are met.

Career opportunities

Of our internal PhD students almost all found a job upon completion of their PhD or even before completion. Most of them continue in academics as a researcher or teacher. But a large part of the graduates continue at research institutes, government or semi-governmental organizations.
