Course summary

Overview

Our Psychology course begins with intentional support for your successful transition to university, carries you through the content and skills that define a Psychology graduate, and ends by opening up conceptual and career possibilities you may not have previously considered.

In addition to exploring the five main psychological perspectives: biological, cognitive, developmental, individual differences and social, and research methods, you will engage with the historical and conceptual underpinnings of Psychology throughout. You’ll also learn to leverage your science to the benefit of your fellow students, industry and for social good.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment varies and includes essays, debates, research reports, group presentations and examinations, as well as more authentic assessments (for example, policy briefs).

How will I be taught?

Most modules involve a mixture of lectures and follow-up seminars and tutorials. In the case of research methods, much of the teaching is conducted via practical classes.

You’ll participate actively in seminars and tutorials; these are characterised by small-group work. Bookable tutorials enable you to have one-to-one discussions with staff.

Careers

Some of our graduates have completed, or are currently taking postgraduate education at the Master's and PhD levels. Graduates with single or major honours in Psychology can apply directly for postgraduate training, in order to work towards becoming a professional psychologist.

The majority of Psychology graduates, across the country, do not become professional psychologists. Some of our graduates have gone on to train in counselling. Many students choose to undertake PGCEs and a number of these are gaining experience for Educational Psychology courses. Other students go into management, sales and advertising, probation work and human resources. Psychology is an attractive option since students learn both numerative/scientific skills and people skills.
