As a society, one of our biggest challenges is tackling mental health. Mental illness can affect people at all stages of life, just as it can impact families, carers and communities. Our clinical psychology courses will teach you to tackle mental health head on.
When you study clinical psychology at Swinburne, you’ll have the opportunity to specialise in psychopathology. You’ll learn to assess and treat clinical disorders including anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, eating disorders, personality disorders, trauma, alcohol dependence, childhood disorders and psychogeriatric conditions.
By the time you graduate, you’ll have completed an accredited placement — and you’ll be ready to work as a psychologist in a clinical context.
