BB-PSYAIN Double degree Hawthorn Send me a link to this course

What goes on in the mind when we do the things we do? And how can you make a difference when things don’t go as they should? With the unique Bachelor of Psychological Sciences/Bachelor of Applied Innovation double degree, you’ll explore answers to these questions and learn how innovation can make a difference to psychology.

The Bachelor of Psychological Sciences is your first step toward becoming a registered psychologist. Providing specialised study in developmental psychology, cognition, social psychology, personality, psychological measurement and abnormal psychology, it’s accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).

With the addition of Bachelor of Applied Innovation, your psychology studies take on a whole new perspective. You’ll learn how to combine analytical and strategic thinking, technology and design with your understanding of human needs and behaviour. Working with students from other schools across campus, you’ll be challenged and inspired to develop transformative solutions to the complex challenges of today and the emerging opportunities of the future.

Working on real-world problems through placements, internships or industry-based project work, you’ll benefit from interdisciplinary, experiential learning. You’ll tap into your true leadership potential as you gain the skills to build a better future through innovation.

As a future-ready graduate, you could work as a counsellor, medical researcher, child safety officer or psychologist in health, clinical, or sports environments. Your innovation degree multiplies your career prospects, opening up roles such as human-centred design researcher, innovation consultant, strategic designer or transformation lead.

This course is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).
