The Bachelor of Psychological Studies (Graduate entry) aims to provide students already holding a Bachelor degree with the core knowledge and skills furnished by an undergraduate major in psychology.

The course:

  • develops knowledge of psychological theory and research regarding the factors influencing human behaviour and experience
  • provides skills for the application of this knowledge to issues in the real world
  • prepares graduates for possible entry into an Honours program in psychology.

Students undertake a core set of studies covering such fields as learning, motivation, personality, development across the lifespan, social influences, group processes and biological influences on behaviour.

Also integral to the course is the development of critical thinking and research skills, and an understanding of the ethical responsibilities of researchers and psychology clinicians.
