The Bachelor of Science (Psychology) provides you with a great base in six different areas of psychology: developmental, social, personality, methods, cognition and biological. In your later year courses, you'll apply this knowledge and your skills in more specialised areas such as neuroscience, counselling, health and organisational (business) psychology. Once you've completed your third year, you can apply to undertake an honours year and pursue further postgraduate study. This will allow you to practice as a clinical psychologist.
The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) provides the same breadth of opportunities as the Bachelor of Science (Psychology), with the addition of honours pathway options that are designed to extend your understanding and introduce you to concepts that are more advanced than standard course activities. This degree also offers a direct pathway into honours. (Progression requirements apply throughout the first three years of the degree to progress into the fourth honours year.) This program is suited to those who intend to complete a postgraduate qualification in psychology and pursue a career as a clinical psychologist.
