About this course

The Bachelor of Behavioural Studies offered through Open Universities Australia is designed to equip students with a comprehensive understanding of how the human mind works.

With a focus on psychological and behavioural management studies, this course will provide students with the ability to research and analyse human motivation - a highly sought-after ability in a range of sectors. From advertising to healthcare, such industries rely on professionals who can understand and deconstruct why people behave the way they do.

By completing the Psychological Studies major, students will be given a broad introduction to basic psychological elements and concepts.
