Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology)
Duration: 2 Years Full-Time; Flexible Part-Time Available for domestic students only
The Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) provides students with a scientific understanding of normal psychological processes such as perception, memory, learning, motivation, psychobiology, personality, emotion, developmental psychology and social relationships, as well as training in abnormal psychology. A basic understanding of these topics is acquired across the two introductory subjects before a greater depth of coverage is undertaken within the advanced second and third level subjects. Students also participate in laboratory work and are introduced to the Australian Psychological Society Code of Ethics. To underpin the scientific nature of the discipline, students receive training in a range of data analytic techniques and research methods used by psychologists. The program is designed to equip graduates with the basic scientific grounding and theoretical understanding required for advanced level studies.
This program is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) as the equivalent of three years’ university training in psychology.
This degree qualifies students for employment in professional areas such as counselling and various functions associated with human resources. It is also the building block for further studies where you are able to pursue careers in the professional practice of psychology including clinical, organisational or forensic psychology, counselling, clinical neuropsychology, health and community psychology, research, and other specialist areas.
