Course summary

The first Master’s course of its kind, our MSc Behaviour Change with its distinct pathways, opens doors to a wide range of fulfilling careers which focus on changing people’s behaviour and helping them to make positive choices.

Specialise in the areas which interest you most, by taking one of four unique pathways (availability of each depends on student numbers), allowing you to focus on the area in which you are most interested, which reflects your current job role or which meets your employers’ needs. They are:

  • MSc Behaviour Change (Health and Wellbeing)
  • MSc Behaviour Change (Occupational Health and Safety)
  • MSc Behaviour Change (Environment and Conservation)
  • MSc Behaviour Change (Ergonomics and Human Factors)

This is an original and topical course which challenges assumptions about behaviour change. It is aimed at professionals who want to gain new knowledge to support their work, and at graduates from a broad range of disciplines who would like to specialise in behaviour change and add social science to their skill set.


You'll be assessed via coursework. There will be many activities to thoroughly prepare you for your coursework. Assessments are matched to the individual module learning outcomes, which are derived from the course aims and learning outcomes.


Our MSc Behaviour Change course could be your stepping stone to employment and promotion opportunities in the health sector, local government and occupational health and safety roles.

It also provides a suitable qualification if you’re working in allied areas and want to progress your career by branching out into a specialist area. You could, for instance, be a physiotherapist or an occupational health and safety professional keen to broaden your skill set by focusing on behaviour change.

In addition, the MSc Behaviour Change provides a strong basis for further study in the form of a PhD. You will also gain PGCert and PGDip awards in this course.
