The psychology major sequence provides you with a comprehensive and systematic study of human behaviour. The emphasis is on the dynamic nature of our behaviours and the interaction of biological, social and cultural factors that influence these at all levels and at all stages of the life span.
The major is also a pathway to becoming a secondary-school psychology teacher when combined with a tertiary teaching qualification.
(Please note that this major is not an APAC accredited major in psychology; so this major does not offer a career pathway to become a psychologist).
Having a major in psychology is considered desirable in a diverse range of professions, such as business management, marketing, human relations, sales, advertising, community services, counselling, health services, protective services, education, and graduate programs.
