Course summary

Why Behavioural Sciences?

What drives people to make the choices they make and do the things they do? And how do those processes go on to form relationships, groups and society as a whole? This course takes a fascinating look at the individual and social processes that help to shape the world we live in.

The study of behavioural sciences combines elements of psychology and sociology to explore how individuals behave, and how society functions. It looks at life as we live it, and the situations we all know and experience, to understand what goes on under the surface.

How will you learn?

  • We’ll give you lots of opportunities to explore real-life examples and situations, moving beyond the theory to see what it means in context.
  • In your second year you’ll have the chance to go on a compulsory work experience, so you can put what you’ve learnt into practice. Previous students have taken work experiences in schools, colleges, charities, law firms, community organisations and commercial businesses.
  • In your second year you may have the opportunity to study abroad for a term which could help to enhance your personal development, enabling you to build your confidence and key skills that will further your future employability prospects.
  • You'll also be eligible for student membership of the British Sociological Association (BSA), which could help you stand out from other candidates when it comes to finding employment.

Your career

We know you’re coming to university to undertake your course, meet new people and broaden your horizons. However, we also help you to focus on life after you have graduated to ensure that your hard work pays off and you achieve your ambition.

So while you’re here (and even after you graduate) the Careers and Employability Service offer professional help, support and guidance, including industry-supported workshops, careers fairs and one-to-one guidance sessions.
