Graduate/accredited education

To meet the needs of graduates wanting to pursue formal studies in behaviour change, BehaviourWorks and the Monash Sustainable Development Institute recently co-designed the first-ever specialised behaviour change unit within the Master of Environment and Sustainability.

The 12-week unit, entitled ‘Understanding human behaviour to influence change’, helps students understand individual behaviours and identify opportunities for change. The subject can also be taken as a stand-alone Master’s unit and covers the following topics:

"It's very rewarding to be involved in training the next generation of behaviour change practitioners who are forming their own alumni. Where behaviour change used to be embedded in the social sciences and marketing, our new behaviour change champions recognise it as a stand-alone field of research and a valuable tool of government and industry - BehaviourWorks Director, Liam Smith..”
