Bachelor of Psychology (Honours)

Monash University

The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) is designed for students with a passion for understanding human cognition and behaviour. It provides them with a comprehensive education in human psychology from normal to abnormal psychology and from genetic/molecular level to individual and group behavioural level. The study of human psychology is ever-growing and changing, and this program provides students with up-to-date thinking on understanding the human brain, thought and behaviour. The knowledge gained in this course will give students the foundations to make their 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 their studies students gain broad, interdisciplinary knowledge of psychology and a deep understanding of specific areas, including: addiction; brain injury and rehabilitation; memory and consciousness; neurodevelopment; neurodegeneration; psychopathology; 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 students a deep understanding of the biological basis of human cognition and behaviour. Through a focus on neuroscience, students 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.
