Psychology is the scientific study of behaviour and mental processes. The role of psychologists has diversified to cater for the needs of the individual as well as for communities, professions and organisations. Teaching and research facilities for psychology are excellent at JCU. The Townsville campus includes a fully functioning psychology clinic.
Graduates who complete an accredited, four-year (Honours) course majoring in Psychology can apply for conditional registration as psychologists with the Psychologists Board of Queensland. Subject to completing a further two years of supervised practice or a Masters of Psychology, graduates can gain full membership of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and full registration to practice as psychologists.
As psychology is offered in four different degree programs at JCU, choosing your degree will depend on your career objectives and interests. JCU’s Psychology Department also offers professional development programs at postgraduate level.
