If you have an interest in human behaviour and a desire to help others improve their quality of life then this interdisciplinary program is for you. Develop the in-demand skills of using Applied Behaviour Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, acceptance and mindfulness-based therapies to support individuals across the lifespan with developmental issues or disabilities, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, acquired brain injury, addiction or dementia.

Through a comprehensive mix of theoretical, research and applied courses, students will develop in-demand professional competencies that link the science, clinical, communication and ethical aspects of behavioural science.

Beginning with the development of a strong foundation in behaviour analysis approaches, introductions to psychology and research and development of therapeutic communication skills, the program progresses to the study of complex concepts in human behaviour and applications.

The Honours Bachelor of Behavioural Science (HBBS) is designed to provide students with professional competencies that link science, clinical, communication and ethical aspects of behavioural science. There is a strong focus on Applied Behaviour Analysis, including cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and mindfulness-based therapies, to ensure that graduates possess broad knowledge, skills and judgement, leading to a variety of professional employment opportunities or future studies, including at the master’s degree level. The HBBS program examines the application of these theories for individuals across the lifespan and a variety of settings.

The approach taken in the program is reflective of the ever-increasing application of behavioural sciences both in community and long-term care facilities to teach adaptive skills and manage reactive behaviours to clients including children and youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder, individuals with acquired brain injury and those with behaviour issues associated with addictions, mental health and illness, and dementia.

Along with the behavioural sciences, the HBBS program includes essential curriculum elements aimed at developing the professional and therapeutic communication skills that are vital to success in the field. Equipped with the real-work experience gained through a 420-hour field placement, graduates go on to draw on this science and communication foundation to effectively interact with other health professionals, clients and their caregivers.
