Course CRICOS Code: 033859J
Registered full-time Duration: 5 Years
Bachelor Double Degrees prepare students to develop broad and coherent knowledge and skills in more than one discipline for professional work and further learning corresponding to AQF level 7 qualifications.
This double degree is designed to provide a basis in and appreciation of the scientific discipline of psychology as well as the human resource management and industrial relations professions. This combination provides graduates with a highly marketable knowledge base that allows them to relate to a broad range of managers, professionals and consultants, and also provides a foundation for graduate studies in either professional application or research.

A fourth year in psychology is necessary to apply for associate membership of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and for provisional registration as a psychologist. In Australia two years supervised psychological practice after fourth year, or completion of a two-year masters program or a one-year professional masters and one year of supervised psychological practice, is required for full registration as a psychologist.
Additional Course Expenses
Students may be expected to purchase a number of textbooks and other essential study materials.
