Curious about human behaviour? Our Bachelor of Social Science (Social Justice and Behavioural Science) allows you to examine how humans interact and communicate with each other. You will explore memory, perception, learning and consciousness and combine them with the study of broader society.

Through a combination of arts and science courses, this degree will encourage you to consider the political, psychological, cultural and environmental factors that impact human behaviour, and will develop your research skills across a diverse range of social and cultural issues.
