Behavioral Science Research Institute (BSRI) is a division of Srinakharinwirot University (SWU), with the status equivalent to other faculties of the university. This institute has more than half a century of history. Originally called the International Institute for Child Study, the institute was established per the Cabinet’s resolution of August 10, 1953 under cooperation between UNESCO and the Ministry of Education, and began operation in August 1955. Afterwards, in 1975, the institute’ name was changed to Behavioral Science Research Institute. The original purposes of the Institute were to conduct cross-cultural research on child development, to provide training for researchers, Thai and foreign, in the principle of child development, guidance and research methodology, and to disseminate research findings for improvement of the care and education of children in school and at home. Presently, the institute focuses on the behavioral science research through integration of multiple disciplines –e.g. psychology, social science, political science, economics, and education, to help explain and predict individual behaviors; and disseminate research findings to develop individuals and the society.

As for the Institute's teaching function, between 1963 to 1975 the Institute collaborated with the former College of Education, Ministry of Education in offering a Master's degree program in developmental psychology, educational psychology, social psychology and experimental psychology, The graduates had performed several roles in their workplaces as behavioral scientists.
