    Administrative history

    The Department of Behavioural Science Foundations (BSF) was established in 1965 as one of the original units belonging to the Educational Foundations Centre within the Faculty of Education. It delivered courses relating to theories of education, behaviour and cognitive development. With the re-organization of the Faculty of Education in 1972, the department merged with Communication Studies and left the faculty. This new body would become the Department of Communication Studies in the Faculty of Interdisciplinary Studies, established later that year.
