What will I learn?

ACU's undergraduate psychology programs help students to acquire knowledge, assimilate conceptual understandings and develop skills of application that are valuable to the enhancement of human functioning in a broad range of professional settings. Graduates of the Bachelor of Psychological Science will complete a sequence in psychology that is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC). This sequence will ensure graduates acquire an advanced understanding of human behaviour, as well as highly regarded employability skills.

This learning helps to prepare all students for optional further postgraduate study which may lead to registration as a professional psychologist.

The Bachelor of Commerce provides excellent grounding in many areas of business as well as detailed knowledge and skills in your selected major – human resource management, management or marketing. Our graduates understand the ethical, social, political and economic contexts that guide decision-making. The Bachelor of Commerce will not only help you launch your business career but also prepare you for future managerial positions.
