Minor in Behavioural Science
As society becomes more complex and interactions among citizens multiply and take on myriad facets, the study of human behaviour has become an important science in the new century. The Minor in Behavioural Science Programme aims to provide students with a broad foundation in studying individuals, groups, organisations and societal behaviours. Students will have the opportunities to investigate their own identities, the behaviours of others, interpersonal relationships, and to gain insights into social categories and relationships. The programme is designed for students interested in the knowledge of human behaviour and types of human behaviour in complex organisations.
The Office of the Faculty of Social Sciences coordinates the offering of the Minor in Behavioural Science.
