Our Bachelor of Psychology is an accredited degree, which offers students the opportunity to write an honours thesis or take part in a group research project during their final year.
In the first three years of study students can elect to enrol in a wide range of psychology subjects that will give them an introduction into specialised fields such as:
sensation and perception
cognition and learning.
Career areas could include:
marketing and market research
training and development.
With further study you could practice as a psychologist for a career in counselling or industrial and organisational psychology.
Our Business program focuses on providing skills and qualifications to prepare you for your future professional employment and positions of leadership, in organisations and the community.
The Bachelor of Business is designed with input from industry experts and uses current research results for real-world relevance. Our lecturers have strong business and academic credentials and focus on creating a challenging and inspiring learning environment.
You can also choose from 11 majors in the Bachelor of Business, and so tailor your study towards your interests and your future career.
Graduates who have completed the APAC accredited, four-year program can progress to careers as professional psychologists in private practice, government policy development, health and allied health, education, human resource management, research institutions, or the criminal justice system and correctional facilities. Alternatively, depending on their results, graduates of the four-year program may apply to do a clinical Masters or Doctorate degree or pursue a research degree.
Graduates of the non-accredited psychology major (over three years or a fourth Honours year) can pursue a diverse range of careers in government and human services organisations, business corporations, and the health sector where psychology and arts qualifications are valuable in, for example, media, market research, advertising, public relations and human resources.
