About

The Behavioural Decision Science course at Kingston University explores theories of behavioural decision-making science. It will enable you to critically examine theories of judgement and decision-making motivated by research in memory, perception, categorisation, reasoning, social psychology, economics, political and management sciences. 

Overview

Key features:

  • The Behavioural Decision Science course at Kingston University will enable you to develop the skills to evaluate research findings and to relate these findings to practical applications and solutions.
  • It facilitates and encourages interaction between theory, policy and practice in relation to people's judgements and choices in politics, business, retail, health, leisure and sport.
  • You will benefit from regular public lectures delivered by internationally recognised researchers in the fields of decision-making, thinking and risk. In addition, you can attend weekly departmental research seminars, where recent research findings are presented and discussed.

What will you study?

You will cover recent developments in normative, descriptive and experience-based theories of choice, as well as the impact of experience and expertise on judgements and choice. You will be introduced to applications of judgement and decision-making research in areas such as consumer behaviour, politics, sports, economics and health, providing a firm basis in both the theory and practice of cognitive science and decision-making. You will also explore a selection of current research topics relevant to individual and managerial decision-making, wellbeing and policy-making.
