Overview

This MSc in Applied Psychology and Economic Behaviour from University of Bath enables you to delve deeply into the two inter-related disciplines of psychology and economics, in order to better explore, understand and predict the decisions people make.

What you'll study

Combining economic modelling with what psychology can tell us about individual behaviour and emotions you’ll learn to create highly accurate models for predicting human behaviour, which can then be used to empower behaviour change at both a micro and macro level.

This course is ideal if you are seeking to work in any area where understanding human decision-making is critical. This ranges from industry and healthcare, to developing new technologies or policies, and beyond.

The course has been designed from an interdisciplinary perspective, bringing together specialist teaching and expertise from both the Department of Psychology and Department of Economics.

You will leave this course with:

  • a deep, interdisciplinary, understanding of the psychological and economic science affecting human factors in decision-making
  • a thorough understanding of the modelling of human decision-making and the ability to integrate psychological science with this to create enriched models of choice behaviour
  • the ability to develop powerfully-predictive behavioural models based on a strong bedrock of theory from both psychology and economics
  • the ability to use models to deliver valid conclusions

This course is highly relevant if you have an economics or psychology background, or come from a background where modelling or understanding human behaviour is a key component, such as engineering or sociology.
