Build your skills over three courses

Our educational system contains three courses that cover distinct approaches to building psychology-inspired websites, apps and campaigns.
DBC covers digital psychology and behavioral science.
EDP covers the neuroscience of emotional design.
ABD shows you how to translate all the theory to a project of your choosing.

Psychology for Digital Behavior Change [DBC]

DBC is our foundational course covering behavioral science from a psychological perspective. 

You’ll learn the core principles of applied digital psychology, over 50 scientifically proven principles, and develop critical judgment on translating psychology into digital products, services, and campaigns.

Emotional Design Psychology & Neuroscience [EDP]

EDP covers behavioral science from a neuroscience perspective. It simplifies the biology of human cognition and perception by focusing on the emotions that motivate digital behavior.

This course tackles design from the perspective of each distinct motivational system and helps students calibrate their emotional compass.

Applied Behavioral Design [ABD]

ABD is a hands-on course where we guide students through the behavioral design process. It's a LIVE coaching course that runs parallel to DBC and EDP. 

We only offer it LIVE so we can provide coaching feedback, run interactive exercises, and facilitate group processes that help students internalize the content.
