Understand the workings of the human mind and the behavioural patterns it informs with the Psychology major. You’ll look at how the world around us influences our thoughts and behaviour and the internal mechanisms of behaviour itself.

Examine the biological bases of behaviour in terms of human anatomy, physiology, and evolution. You’ll also develop an understanding of the design and construction of psychological tests (ability and personality) and how this information can be applied to assess and maximise performance across a wide range of professional environments.

Apply this field of study in a broad range of industry sectors and choose the career path that’s right for you.

Psychology is a 120 unit major, specific courses can be found in the program handbook.

The Psychology major within the Bachelor of Science is available at both our Newcastle (Callaghan) campus and our Central Coast (Ourimbah) campus.
