The course provides the first three years of study and training required to prepare graduates for employment in a range of careers that require critical thinking and an understanding of human psychological factors. Many graduates pursue postgraduate training to become registered psychologists who provide clinical services, while others work in psychological research or other community settings. The degree focuses on providing a thorough knowledge of the theoretical basis of psychological science and prepares students to conduct an independent research project should they choose to take an additional honours year on completion of the degree. Eligible students may undertake this fourth year of study by enrolling in the accredited Bachelor of Psychological Science with Honours, completion of which is the minimal educational qualification to apply for conditional registration as a postgraduate intern in psychology in Australia.
