Course summary

This course provides a distinctive social science and practical policy-oriented approach to psychological and behavioural science. As well as developing core knowledge and skills in psychological and behavioural science you will learn to analyse ways in which its theories and findings can be applied to the real world, to use them to understand important social issues and propose and assess possible solutions.

Psychological and behavioural science focuses on how people think and behave. Its theories and phenomena range from individual processes to societal trends. You will apply these perspectives to a wide range of real-world contexts, including politics, communication, health, and societal development. You will learn about core approaches to psychological and behavioural science, including cognitive, neuroscientific, social, developmental and individual differences approaches, which can be built on in advanced, research-led options to broaden the social science and policy connections. You will also develop skills in research methods, including experimental and questionnaire design, and qualitative approaches such as interviews and focus groups, so that you can design and conduct high-quality independent empirical research.

You will acquire techniques in statistical analysis and interpretation to allow your results to be analysed and presented to have significant impact on real world policy. Likely graduate employment sectors for this programme include communications, public policy, management consultancy, international development, charities and NGOs, organisational development and change, behavioural insights research, teaching, mass media, marketing and finance.
