Summary

In any domain of human experience – be it politics, the environment, agriculture, health, education, and still others – and considering the national and global challenges currently faced in each, the importance of understanding why humans behave in the ways that they do has never been more urgent. Behavioural insight is utilised by experts and practitioners in diverse subject areas and professional applications; indeed, psychological understanding is at the core of the work of many geographers, international relations, and business leadership experts, for example, as they seek to optimise human behaviour in niche domains. The Department of Psychology at Aberystwyth University houses experts who can explain human behaviour and mechanisms of behaviour change from numerous perspectives (e.g., evolutionary, cognitive, social, biological, and developmental branches of psychology). Students on this scheme will receive a thorough psychological grounding in the subject matter, as well as an equally comprehensive sociological foundation (historical, cultural, technological, geopolitical, psychological governance, etc. behavioural insights), before specialising in their own domain of interest via module options and the dissertation.
