Course summary

Uncover the science behind behaviour. This unique and dynamic programme provides the opportunity for full-time professionals working in any sector to obtain a graduate qualification in behavioural science, allowing you to pursue new and expanded opportunities within this emerging and exciting field.

Recognising the limitations of traditional practice and research methods, many organisations now engage with the idea of applying behavioural insights to their organisational challenges. Behavioural science may be an area directly related to your current professional role, or you may wish to pursue the programme for your own personal or career development.

The programme is taught by specialists at the forefront of research in behavioural science, in a multidisciplinary environment with links to specialist research groups based in departments across LSE. It is taught in a modular format, with courses taking place at LSE during three two-week sessions in September, January and April. In betwen teaching sessions you will be required to complete various assessments. You will also complete a dissertation on a topic of your choice.

Careers

This MSc will prepare you to seek and/or advance your career in behavioural science in multiple sectors, including the public and private sectors, non-governmental organisations and academia. Upon graduation you can expect to take on more responsibility or pursue new and expanded opportunities within the behavioural science field.

Many of our alumni have gone on to set up and lead behavioural insights units within their organisations, or moved to roles where they have been able to apply principles of behavioural science within their professions. Some have set up behavioural science consultancy businesses, and others have gone on to further study. Our alumni often find that the programme transforms their career paths, and that it also has a very positive impact on their personal development.
