Bachelor of Psychological Science

UNSW Sydney

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00098G

This Psychological Science degree enables students to combine their interest in psychology with other interest areas across the University and complete an accredited psychology degree in three years. If commercially minded, students could combine a major in human resources, marketing or management. Alternatively, they could combine psychology with areas in the art and social sciences such as philosophy, criminology, or linguistics. If students prefer to pursue a career in healthcare or biomedical research, they could combine their degree with vision science or neuroscience. The degree also offers a pathway to fourth year honours if a career as a professional psychologist is what students want. On completion of their degree, students are awarded a Bachelor of Psychological Science.


Students will need to decide at the end of Stage 2 whether they wish to pursue honours in Psychology, and if so, completion of a complementary major may not be possible due to the number of Psychology courses required at Stage 3 for honours in Psychology.
