Behavioural Science in IT-environments

An important aspect of information technology is the ease with which it can be used to achieve its purpose. Experts are needed to design and evaluate IT-systems. Such experts have a sound understanding of user behaviour and the consequences of introducing IT into an environment. The programme develops skills in using behavioural concepts to analyze the impact of information technology practices in the workplace and other environments, and to develop the ability to communicate, both verbally and in writing, at the university level.
