London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Course Introduction

The MSc Behavioural Science programme is a world leading master's degree which teaches you how to use behavioural science to change human behaviour in corporate and public environments. The skill to understand, predict, and change human behaviour is essential for your professional success. Organisations in the private and public sector have turned to behavioural science insights to increase the effectiveness of their practices. This has led to an increase in demand for people with these skills, formally in behavioural insights and people analytics teams, and less formally in leadership, change management and human resources roles. By pursuing this degree, you will acquire cutting edge scientific insights about human behaviour and learn how to change human behaviour by altering the ?context? in which people act rather than how they think. You will also gain expertise in state-of-the-art methodological and statistical approaches that are necessary to evaluate the effectiveness of behavioural change.

The programme is taught by specialists at the forefront of research in behavioural science, and is rooted at the intersection of economics and psychology. It has a rigorous focus on the cross-disciplinary theoretical, empirical, and applied fundamentals of changing behaviour. This MSc will prepare you to seek and/or advance your career in behavioural science in multiple sectors, including the public and private sectors, non-governmental organisations and academia. Upon graduation you can expect to take on more responsibility or pursue new and expanded opportunities within the behavioural science field.
