Behavioral Sciences degrees abroad

Behavioral sciences is a fascinating subject area that analyzes the causes and consequences of human behavior. It draws on concepts and findings from psychology, sociology, and anthropology.

By enrolling in this program, you’ll learn how to apply behavioral science theories and principles to real-world scenarios. As well as understanding and explaining human behaviors, you’ll be challenged to design and implement interventions for positive behavioral change.

Human behavior is heavily influenced by one’s environment. By studying abroad, you’ll see how different societies and cultures can shape the way individuals think, feel, and behave. You’ll also gain a global appreciation of the impacts that contemporary challenges can have on human actions and interactions.

Behavioral Sciences program structure

Bachelor’s degrees in behavioral science last at least three years, but they’ll take four years if you complete an industry placement. Sandwich years are superb experiences because you can try out potential careers and network with experts in the field.

Bachelor’s degrees work a little differently in the US because most universities follow the four-year liberal arts model of education. Before majoring in behavioral science, you’ll attend two years of general education classes.

To qualify for many roles related to behavioral science, you’ll need to have postgraduate qualifications under your belt. Master’s and doctoral programs offer advanced instruction and research in the field and last up to two and six years respectively.

You’ll be taught through a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and group workshops. Assessment methods vary depending on the modules you choose, but exams, essays, presentations, and practical case study analyses are likely to feature.

Below are some of the core units you’ll probably cover as part of your program:

  • Making sense of society and culture
  • The sociological imagination
  • Cognitive psychology
  • Developmental psychology
  • Biological psychology
  • Personality and individual differences
  • Research methods in behavioral science
  • Cognition and emotion
