Psychology

Pathway into a rewarding career in psychology with CQUniversity's accredited degrees and make a positive impact every day.

To take the first step towards your career as a psychologist you will need to complete an accredited three-year degree. If you are completing tertiary study for the first time, you will study our Bachelor of Psychological Science, while our Bachelor of Science (Psychology) is suitable if you have completed a degree previously. Both courses are nationally-accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council and are a great step towards professional registration as a psychologist (requiring a further one-year honours degree, followed by two years of postgraduate study).

I love psychology because you can use it to really understand what’s happening with people and create real change. I always thought I would end up in private practice, but studying has exposed me to an infinite number of possibilities.

Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honors), Master of Clinical Psychology

On completion of your third year, you have the option to complete an accredited fourth year in psychology and become eligible for provisional registration as a psychologist within Australia. Entry into our Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours) is competitive and requires you to have achieved a minimum GPA of 5.5.

Our fifth-year Master of Professional Psychology allows for a final year supervised internship to then register as a psychologist. The fifth- and sixth-year Master of Clinical Psychology allows you to register as a general psychologist and apply for endorsement as a clinical psychologist.

If you are more interested in understanding human behaviour without seeking professional registration, our single and double bachelor degrees blend your specialisation of choice with a psychology major.
