In the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, students gain foundational knowledge and skills in psychology within a comprehensive liberal arts program. The program offers a deep conceptual and evidencebased understanding of the behaviour, cognitive functions, and emotional processes of human beings. Students explore how emotional and cognitive states influence individual development and behaviour, and how these factors themselves can be influenced by physiological and biological processes. They are introduced to diagnosis and treatment of mental illness, while also examining scientific methods used to analyse a wide range of topics related to mental health and behaviour.

Students can complement their studies in psychology with an enriching range of second majors or minors which can broaden or deepen personal interests.

Graduates will discover that studies in psychology are widely transferable and valuable across many industries, and complement studies in areas such as the law, human resources and management, sociology, behavioural science, data analytics and social justice.

Areas of study

Biopsychology and behaviour, brain, cognition and learning, lifespan development, perception and decision making, psychopathology, research methods for psychology, social psychology.

Career opportunities

Government agencies, international organisations, policy research & development, human services, social advocacy, community development.
