I hope that you will enjoy your study in psychology, whether you are studying a couple of electives or required courses as part of your degree, the extended major in either the Bachelor of Arts or Science, or whether you are enrolled in the Bachelor of Psychological Science.
Psychology is an interesting and varied area of study, so I hope that you will take the time to find out about the different topics that researchers and practioners focus on. You will find that we offer a strong core of the classic areas of both basic and applied psychology, up to date coverage of the current developments across the field, as well as specialist courses in specific areas.
The School of Psychology's course offerings are designed to meet several goals:
The School of Psychology offers two formal research experience courses to psychology students in the first three years of the psychology sequence. These courses provide an opportunity for students to gain experience in a research laboratory in the School of Psychology.
Find out more about these courses and view our list of potential supervisors here.
The School of Psychology runs a Dean's Scholar program for high performing students. You will receive a letter of invitation if you become eligble. Further information about the events in this program is available here.
You may want to spend a semester studying at an overseas university. Because of the structure of our undergraduate sequences in psychology, you will need to start planning early if you want to spend a semester away and still complete your degree in the normal time. Ideally, you would make a time to speak to our student advisor and international support officer during your first year of study to develop a study plan that enables you to study abroad.
All Program and Course Information is available to students via the UQ Program and Courses database.
