The BEHAVE team offers two undergraduate courses to students of the University of Milan Faculty of Political Sciences.
The first is an introductory course on “Sociology” at the Bachelor level (60 hours, 9 credits), in which the focus is on the explanation of social behaviour in an analytical perspective. It starts from the concepts of causal explanations and social mechanisms and includes attention to rational choice theory and other micro-foundations of social behaviour. It focuses on social interaction and complex aggregate dynamics, by discussing the importance of linking micro-meso-macro levels of analysis.
The second is an advanced course on “Behavioural Sociology” at the Master level (60 hours, 9 credits), in which students learn theoretical foundations, and experimental and computational methods to examine social behaviour in complex social settings.
