Busy crossing showing lots of people

We are delighted to announce the launch of an innovative new, predominantly online executive postgraduate programme – the Executive MSc in Behavioural Science.

The programme has been designed to equip ambitious professionals with the knowledge and skills to drive change through a deeper understanding of human behaviour.

Interdisciplinary curriculum

Core topics of the programme include research methods, applied data science, leadership, communication, managing diversity, and an applied consultancy-style research project.

The interdisciplinary curriculum features leading behavioural science experts from our internationally top-ranked Department of Psychology.

The inaugural Executive MSc in Behavioural Science cohort begins in September 2024.

It will be a part-time programme over 18 months and will be delivered through a blend of online and in-person learning.

Entry is competitive, requiring at minimum a 2:1 undergraduate degree and two years’ work experience demonstrating leadership potential.

Two short on-campus teaching blocks will provide opportunities for invaluable peer networking and exposure to Durham’s unique educational environment.

Preparing executives for real-world challenges

This executive postgraduate programme will provide advanced training for employees, executives, and entrepreneurs who are looking to deepen their understanding of behavioural science for use in the workplace and/or contemplating a career/role transition.

This timely degree focuses on real-world application to pressing issues in business, public policy, sustainability, health and society.
