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, communication, research, teamwork and writing.
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.
The programme can be completed in 16-24 months instead of 28-36 months. Applicants with a Polytechnic Diploma may be exempted from up to 12 units and can gain entry to Year 2 of the programme. Applicants with a Murdoch University-recognised Kaplan Diploma or a private Diploma may be exempted from up to 8 units and can also gain entry to Year 2 of the programme. You also have the flexibility to plan your schedule and study at your own pace while you are working.
