Course summary

Course overview

This applied degree offers in-depth coverage of how psychology is relevant to areas that are critical to a functioning society. Course content focuses on three core areas (healthcare, education, and the workplace) but you will be exposed to a range of disciplines in which psychology is applied (including forensic settings, counselling, and politics).

You will have the opportunity to undertake research within an area of psychology that is of interest to you. For example, you can integrate the coursework to support your current area of expertise or use it as a platform to explore other related interests or career paths.
