This program will prepare students for a career as a psychologist or specialise in such areas as forensic psychology, clinical psychology and other accredited psychology postgraduate pathways. Foundational professional skills such as counselling and applied neuropsychology are also part of the accredited psychological science degree and combined with the research training within both criminology and psychology, graduates of the combined program are well placed for many careers.Please note that registration as a psychologist requires completion of an accredited 4th year such as the Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) plus postgraduate training in psychology.
