Understand Human Behaviour and Motivations

Psychology is the study of human behaviour and mental processes, encompassing many aspects, such as individual differences in personality and intelligence, and emotions, motivations, memory, thought processes and interpersonal relationships. As an applied discipline, it is aligned to a professional career as a "Psychologist".

A Psychology Degree programme equips students with broad theoretical and practical knowledge of Psychology as well as job-ready skills in analysis, writing, research, communication and teamwork.

At Murdoch University, our Degree programme goes a step further, integrating the established basis of psychological knowledge and methods of investigation with the latest developments in the field. It also allows students to enhance their learning by studying Minors in related areas, such as Criminal Psychology, Human Resources and Ethics.

Equip yourself with a Double Major Degree in Psychology and you will be well-versed in human cognition and motivations, and capable of exploring the wide range of career opportunities in this field.

Polytechnic Diploma holders receive exemptions and gain direct entry to Year 2 of the Degree programme1. You can complete your programme in 16 months instead of 28 months2. You can look forward to starting your careers and earning sooner, possibly even one year earlier. You also have the flexibility to plan your schedule and study at your own pace while you are working.
