Progress rapidly in the psychological domain

This accelerated, advanced program provides an ideal platform from which to step into the professional world of psychology. Conveniently studied part-time over just 1.3 years (subject to course availability) —100% online—it offers the equivalent learning of a psychology bachelor degree’s honours year.

Successful completion will open many rewarding career paths.

What will you do?

Developed by the University’s world-class, research-active psychology academics, including titleholders working in clinical practice, the degree is highly practical and industry-informed. You will:

  • gain significant capability in effective questioning, rapport building and empathic responding
  • learn about important psychological assessment and testing considerations, including key ethical issues and cultural responsiveness
  • understand when and how to apply appropriate psychological concepts and interventions
  • acquire advanced research design and analysis capabilities, and the ability to apply them to complex real-world problems
  • hone skills in the effective presentation of your research findings to a variety of audiences.

Where could it take you?

You could continue studying to become a registered psychologist. You might go on to a research master’s or PhD. Or perhaps you’ll apply your psychological skills and insight directly in the workforce, enhancing both your own performance and that of those around you.
