The Bachelor of Psychology (Professional Streams) is a single VTAC entry point only. During the first year, you will choose the professional stream you wish to follow, and then transfer to the named specialist course (i.e. Bachelor of Psychology (Child and Family), Bachelor of Psychology (Forensic), Bachelor of Psychology (Health), or Bachelor of Psychology (Organisational)) at the end of Year 1.
Regardless of which course stream you choose, you will complete the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited major sequence in psychology, which, in turn, allows you to qualify for postgraduate training in research or applied/professional psychology.
The units you complete that are specific to your course stream will prepare you to apply the skills and knowledge you develop through your psychology major in a work-relevant specialist area regardless of whether you continue to post-graduate study or not. Up to four electives from any of the four faculties can be incorporated. Classes in psychology are available to students face-to-face and also in the Cloud. This is also the case for the majority of units in the professional streams, however students should check unit details before enrolling.
