If you're interested in psychology or aiming to become a professional psychologist or researcher, this three-year degree is designed for you. You'll study core psychology subjects including clinical psychology foundations, developmental and social psychology, psychological assessment and intervention and how to conduct research. You can focus on clinical neuroscience or learn about the psychology of culture and global citizenship, human relationships or even animal-human relationships. You can also apply to complete a psychology-related field placement and will have opportunities to study Autism Spectrum Disorders with specialists from the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre (OTARC). We work closely with industry bodies such as the Australian Psychological Society, along with hospitals and community centres, to make sure you're in touch with the latest developments in the field. You can choose elective subjects from dozens of areas outside psychology including legal studies, criminology, business, management, marketing, sociology, sciences, genetics, language, drama, media studies, and more.
