¿Qué aprenderé?

Psychology is the scientific study of human behaviour, the human brain and its effect on the way we act and why. This fascinating area of study covers a broad range of areas such as memory, decision-making and developmental studies.

In addition to gaining knowledge in a diverse array of psychology fields, the Bachelor of Psychological Science also encompasses statistical analysis and research methodologies to provide you with comprehensive skills that can be utilised across a variety of career paths. Your study will help you become an expert in human behaviour and give you the skills to make a positive impact in the lives of others.

The Bachelor of Psychological Science covers a wide range of subject areas. In your first year you will examine the influences on behaviour and personality plus the mechanisms of behaviour such as emotions, perception, learning and memory. Second year expands on these topics to include areas of the biological basis of behaviour, while in third year you will study core topics in more depth. Throughout the degree you will learn about:

  • research methodology
  • statistics
  • cognition and information processing
  • social psychology and personality
  • clinical and abnormal behaviour
  • neuroscience
  • psychopharmacology
  • perceptual processes and learning theory
  • developmental psychology

Depending on your marks throughout your degree you will have the option to study Honours. Honours gives you a good research base to progress on to postgraduate study and can also boost your employment prospects. We are one of only a handful of universities to offer a Psychological Science (Honours) degree and this gives you a better chance to pursue higher positions and salaries after you graduate.
