Our Honours B.A.Sc. in Human Behaviour offers a combination of breadth and depth of education in how behaviour works at the individual and societal level. Students completing this program will be well equipped to enter any work environment that requires understanding the determinants of human behaviour – the social influences on behaviour; the basic neuroscience underlying behaviour; the stages of language development; and the stages of early development and their impact on human behaviour. The generalist stream of the Honours B.A.Sc. program gives students substantial flexibility to customize their degree to focus on subspecialty areas of their choice. Capstone experiences focus on science literacy and science communication to a broader audience. The generalist stream is an excellent preparatory degree for a range of other applied certificate/diploma training, and in itself offers a more applied versus research-focused background than the Honours PNB degree.
