Course Description

The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) is designed for those with a passion for understanding human cognition and behaviour. It provides you with a comprehensive education in human psychology – from normal to abnormal psychology and from the genetic/molecular level to the individual and group behavioural level.

The study of human psychology is ever-growing and changing, and our program provides you with up-to-date thinking on our understanding of the human brain, thought and behaviour. The knowledge gained in this course will give you the foundations to make your own new and exciting scientific discoveries, help to promote mental health and to influence how those in the community think about mental health and the workings of the human brain and mind.

During your studies you will gain broad, interdisciplinary knowledge of psychology and a deep understanding of specific areas, including the following:

brain injury and rehabilitation
memory and consciousness
sleep and circadian rhythms and how they influence cognition and mental health

Required study includes the core sequence of units accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) and neuroscience-related units designed to give you a deep understanding of the biological basis of human cognition and behaviour. Through a focus on neuroscience, you will gain an in-depth knowledge of brain function and dysfunction. This will provide an exceptional foundation for future research in the cognitive neurosciences and clinical psychology.

Your lecturers are active researchers, many of whom are world leaders in their fields. You will be exposed to cutting-edge research, often not yet seen in textbooks, giving you the very latest information on neuroscience, psychology and mental-health treatment.

Many opportunities exist for our graduates, including academic and industry research, teaching, clinical neuropsychology and many other related careers
