CSU’s Bachelor of Psychology course is designed to meet the initial requirement of professional training in psychology.
Bachelor of Psychology
Bachelor of Psychology (Honours)
About the course
Successful completion of this course will satisfy the academic requirements for registration as a psychologist in NSW and most States and Territories (two years of supervised experience or completion of a two-year accredited postgraduate degree would still be required).
The Bachelor of Psychology is a high-demand course and the UAI (or equivalent) for entry is greater than that for the Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology). Students who do not satisfy the entry requirement may enrol in the Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) and then transfer to the Bachelor of Psychology at a later stage if their academic performance is good.
Psychology is concerned with the scientific understanding of human behaviour. It is both an academic discipline and a profession.
As an academic discipline, it comprises a body of knowledge about behaviour and mental process, and involves research to extend that knowledge. Psychology as a profession involves the application of psychological knowledge to solve social and behavioural problems and to promote human welfare.
To graduate, students must satisfactorily complete 256 points.
Transfer into Honours strand
Students who meet certain eligibility criteria may apply to transfer to the Honours stream.
Students studying by distance education must attend COMPULSORY residential schools for some subjects, as indicated (*).
