Behavioural studies

About behavioural studies

We explore human behaviour from social, cultural and psychological perspectives. We look at the theory and research to answer important questions around why humans behave the way they do and the social issues that arise as a consequence.

Why choose behavioural studies?

You’ll develop insights into your own behaviour and motivations, as well as those of others, making you a socially aware and an interpersonally effective employee. You’ll learn how to apply social psychological principles to important problems, such as domestic violence, cyberbullying, euthanasia, eating disorders, climate change and terrorism.
