What will I learn?

Having a general knowledge of psychology is valuable in many endeavours, and can give you an edge in professions such as teaching, law, business, human resource management, human and community services and administration. Here at The University of Notre Dame Australia, our Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Applied Psychology offers a broad introduction to the science of human behaviour, covering topics such as cognition, belief and work, psychology, counselling and psychological intervention.

Why study this degree?

The science of human behaviour is a fascinating and a constantly evolving field of study with applications in many professional settings. Indeed, the demand for expertise in psychology continues to increase as the interaction between human beings becomes more complex, driven by sophisticated technology such as social media.

Our Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Applied Psychology has been designed for you if you wish to utilise your learnings in a workplace setting, but do not wish to become a clinical psychologist.

Only a minority of those who study psychology work as psychologists, with most graduates working in areas as diverse as teaching, business and administration. As such, this degree forms both an important foundation for future employment and personal development.
