Psychology - unit set code MJ-H000008

Students enrolled in a Bachelor of Arts may undertake a major sequence in psychology offered by the Faculty of Health, Medicine, Nursing and Behavioural Sciences as a major sequence within their BA degree.
The Psychology major sequence is course-grouped for the Bachelor of Arts, that is, the units do not count towards the eight non-course-grouped units able to be taken outside the Faculty.


Students intending to become psychologists, however, must take four levels of academic study (three levels of undergraduate study, including ten units of psychology, plus either a level-4 Honours level or the level-4 Graduate Diploma of Psychology). The 10-credit-point undergraduate Psychology sequence consists of two units at level 1, HPS111 and HPS121, four units at level 2, which must include HPS201 (HPS206 is not formally recognised as a part of the major sequence in psychology and is not counted towards this sequence), plus four units at level 3, which must include HPS301 and HPS309.

Students may also choose to take a limited sequence in psychology of 8 credit points (depending on the requirements of their course). These sequences are designed as terminal studies in psychology to complement other studies within an award. They do not meet the requirements for entry into fourth-level studies in psychology, nor will they lead to professional qualifications in psychology. Students may also choose to take individual elective units in psychology, if they have the relevant prerequisites.



The 8-credit point sequences normally consist of two units at level one, HPS111 and HPS121, two or three units at level 2, selected from HPS202, HPS203, HPS204 and HPS205, and two or three units at level 3, selected from HPS302, HPS303, HPS304 and HPS307, HPS308 and HPS395. Students wishing to take alternative psychology units must seek approval from the School of Psychology.
