Complete an accredited four-year sequence in psychology that will get you provisional registration as a psychologist with the Psychology Board of Australia.
This four-year course differs to the Bachelor of Psychological Science or Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) by providing selected students with the opportunity to complete honours in psychology as part of the final year of this degree. You will, however, have to receive excellent marks in the first three years of study.
Psychology is concerned with understanding human personality, behaviour, emotion, underlying mental processes and the factors that lead people to differ in the way they think and behave.
This course covers broad areas of psychology including behavioural and clinical neuroscience, child and adolescent psychology, relationships and the psychology of groups, cognitive psychology, forensic psychology, and psychopathology.
After graduating, you can work in areas relevant to human wellbeing, such as social work, youth work and developmental psychology among many others. You can also continue your studies by undertaking a postgraduate course.
