More information



The Bachelor of Behavioural Science degree program provides you with the knowledge, skills and abilities required for in-depth work in the behavioural science field with individuals throughout their lifespan. The program is firmly grounded in behavioural science’s theory, principles and practices (applied behaviour analysis and cognitive behavioural approaches) and psychology. Applied Behavioural Analysis uses behavioural rules in everyday situations to help people change their behaviour to improve their quality of life. The program focuses on data obtained through observation as it investigates behaviour, cognitive events and the influence of environmental factors on behaviour.

Courses in the program’s first two years provide a strong foundation in behaviour analytic approaches, psychology, research and ethics while highlighting specific special populations. This is followed in the final two years with further in-depth study of ethics and professionalism, individual and group counselling, issues in behavioural psychology, further special populations, and two courses of senior thesis work. Overall, the program emphasizes critical thinking, analytical skills, interprofessional practice and leadership.
