The result is a balanced education, as well as a specialisation in Psychology. The degree includes Psychology units as diverse as Social Psychology (the study of human social behaviour), Biopsychology (the study of the brain), Psychological Assessment (conducting tests of human abilities and skills), and Psychopathology (the study of mental illness). Students with sufficient grades are eligible for entry into accredited fourth year programs.
