Bachelor of

Behavioural Studies

Knowing how the mind works and why we do the things we do are highly valued skills in the Australian workplace. The Bachelor of Behavioural Studies program offers a broad introduction to basic psychological elements and concepts that enable professionals to analyse human motivation. By undertaking this program you will gain insight into human behaviour through subjects such as psychology and behavioural management. Students can also include a co-major in Sociology or minor specialisations in the areas of Statistics, Sociology, Human Resource Management, Public Relations, Indigenous Studies, Marketing and Criminology.
 

Skills:

This program is structured to enable students to acquire knowledge and skills across a variety of study areas. Students who complete the course are better equipped to understand and explain human behaviour. Unlike the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited Bachelor of Psychological Sciences, the Bachelor of Behavioural Studies places less emphasis on advanced statistical studies, laboratory assessments and report writing. As a result it is not accredited by the APAC.

Upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Behavioural Studies, graduates will be able to systematically review and critically evaluate research to generate creative solutions to complex problems, formulate arguments demonstrating an understanding of the relevant theories and evidence in behavioural studies and understand theoretical principles and apply these in their disciplinary areas of expertise.

 

Career Prospects:

Graduates in Behavioural Studies majoring in Psychological Studies are highly sought after by a wide range of organisations in both the public and private sector, for careers in:

  • human services (as research officers)
