Graduate/accredited education

For the behavioural sciences to really flourish in Australia, we need a new generation of behavioural experts who are capable of straddling the worlds of academia and government/industry.


BehaviourWorks Australia (BWA) is playing a lead role in identifying opportunities for students and developing programs that help graduates advance their careers in this rapidly-evolving multidisciplinary field.   


The best example of this is the Monash Graduate Research Industry Partnership (GRIP) program. Launched in 2017 and led by BWA, the GRIP responds to strong demand for researchers who can work with government and industry to help solve public policy issues.


The GRIP – which finished recruitment in November 2017 – is giving 18 PhD candidates the opportunity to work with BWA’s government partners to co-design and deliver new interdisciplinary behaviour change approaches to help solve a range of social, environmental and organisational problems.

“Demand for behavioural experts is growing worldwide, as more organisations begin to recognise that their programs are more likely to succeed if they are underpinned by an understanding of human behaviour and how to influence it.”
- BehaviourWorks Director, A/Prof Liam Smith.
Master's Unit

We have also collaborated with our colleagues in the Monash Sustainable Development Institute education team to co-design the first-ever specialised behaviour change unit within Monash University’s Master of Environment and Sustainability. 


The Master’s unit, called ‘Understanding human behaviour to influence change’, helps students understand individual behaviours and identify opportunities for change. The unit is also available as an elective to other Master’s students and covers topics such as:


– understanding behaviour and its drivers


– exploring models of behaviour


– unpacking problems using a behavioural lens as part of sustainability policy and practice


– gathering evidence to further diagnose the problem


– designing and testing behaviour change interventions.
