Research

Once students have completed their methodological and disciplinary training , the student will be introduced to areas of study in which the student could potentially develop their thesis work . Areas of study and their respective areas of research are:

1. Foundations of human behavior

The program integrates the training in rational action theory with the discipline of social neuroscience. This line develops the identification of the neurobiological systems involved in the cognitive and emotional mechanisms in which the understanding of behavior in social contexts is sustained.

2. Institutions

Deepens in the articulation of social phenomena from modeling techniques, price theory, game theory, network analysis and simulations, to understand emerging phenomena such as cooperation, stratification and paradigm changes in knowledge systems.

3. Social dynamics

Inquires into the rules and institutions that emerge as a result of the interaction between social beings. Both the reasons after their emergence in social contexts and in the way in which these, once created, condition human behavior and social dynamics.
