Behavioural Sciences - University of Huddersfield

**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 work placement, so you can put what you’ve learnt into practice. Previous students have taken placements in schools, colleges, charities, law firms, community organisations and commercial businesses. - 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.
