Learn how to support people in an increasingly complex world by becoming a mental health professional.

This Bachelor of Psychological Sciences degree is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council and the first step to becoming a psychologist. You’ll study the scope of psychological science and complete a variety of research projects to develop your project management, research and report writing skill set.

Combine with a Bachelor of Arts to widen your knowledge of what drives social change in contemporary society. Majors such as perspectives on globalisation or Indigenous studies will develop your key complex problem solving and cultural competency skills - to broaden your career opportunities helping individuals in need and society at large.

All our bachelor degrees include a guaranteed Work Integrated Learning opportunity. Build up your résumé with real industry experience which could be a placement, internship or industry-linked project. In this degree, in the Psychology Project (PSY30003), you'll have the opportunity to explore a student-led project with an industry collaboration. In your second year, in the Skills and Strategies for Social Change core arts unit, collaborate with fellow students and community, civil society and industry partners to create real campaigns for real social change.
