Course summary

The BA (Hons) Human Behavioural Studies degree is a Level 6 programme designed to take you from HND or FD studies into the next level of higher education, enabling you to achieve a full honours degree. For example, students could progress to this course from: HND Applied Psychology; FdA Childhood Education; FdSc Public Services. Students may progress from other relevant courses subject to application, successful interview and possible bridging module. The programme is a blend of the practical and the academic, giving you the opportunity and the support to develop your practical skills using critical reflection and evaluation so that you can become the best practitioner possible, but also stretching your academic abilities so that you can gain those insights and understandings only achievable through in-depth study of your subject. We aim to facilitate your development towards becoming an autonomous independent learner whilst still ensuring a supportive network in order for you to maximise your potential as a student, employee and citizen. Our policy to run small groups means that the teaching sessions are highly interactive allowing for debate and practical activities to enhance the learning experience. Many students enter employment in teaching, counselling and healthcare, such as a Mental Health Support Assistant or a Health Promotion Supervisor. There are also further study opportunities available at postgraduate level, including Master's Degree programmes at the University of Plymouth or the Postgraduate Certificate in Education at Truro College.
