With a strong theoretical base, you will be examining specified behaviour from cognitive, social and biological approaches by utilising methodologies to support each theory. A range of independent project management, problem0solving and data collection and interpretation skills will be utilised to interpret complex academic material and present information in a meaningful way to those in the community. Combining theoretical elements of human behavioural studies and their practical application to contemporary issues, you will then be able to utilise these skills to discover local employment opportunities. 

On successful completion of this course, you will have a critical awareness of how human behavioural studies fits within a theoretical and historical context and will be able to use critical reflection and evaluation to develop practical skills.
