The Psychology sequence within the Bachelor of Psychological Sciences is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC). This degree provides a first step to becoming a professional psychologist. After completing a degree with an APAC accredited major in psychology, students may apply to undertake a fourth year in psychology and then further study in specialist areas of professional psychology such as counselling, health, clinical, organisational, and sports psychology.
Psychology graduates are highly sought after in a range of human services positions in: community and mental health, human resource management, policy development, research, welfare, journalism, marketing and advertising. In addition to the major in Psychology, students may complete an optional four unit minor known as ‘Advanced Psychology Minor’ and choose 4 from the 6 units offered: PSY20001, PSY20003, PSY20005, PSY30001, PSY30011 or PSY30012. The Advanced Psychology minor includes units that offer students an additional breadth of study in the psychology of human behaviour.
