Bachelor of Psychology

Practical Experience

Our Newcastle (Callaghan) and Central Coast (Ourimbah) campuses offer psychology labs that are stocked with equipment to enhance your practical skills and theoretical studies.

The Bachelor of Psychology degree offered by the University of Newcastle also includes a pre-professional strand of courses each year, which will help you prepare for professional practice. These courses involve guest lectures from practicing psychologists, problem-based workshops and video material to provide an accurate picture of the range of areas within psychology.

If you undertake a fourth, Honours, year of the psychology degree, you will conduct a major research project around a specific area of psychology based on the research methodology you learn throughout your degree. Psychology attains its information from research and is an essential part of the discipline.
