Bachelor of Psychological Science
The aim of this Psychological Science program from CQUniversity Australia is to give you a comprehensive overview of the scientific discipline of psychology and its applications.
The Psychological Science program from CQUniversity Australia is delivered in accordance with the foundational (level one) competencies for three-year undergraduate psychology programs as specified by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC). You will acquire an understanding of the underlying principles, theories and concepts within the discipline.
In addition, you will develop knowledge of the range of core research areas that make up the discipline, and an understanding of the methodologies and statistical techniques used by researchers for information gathering and analysis. There will be opportunities for you to explore applied and professional uses of psychology. In addition, you will be introduced to psychological theory, research, and applied and professional uses of psychology in an ethical and culturally responsive context.
Upon completion of this course, you will have a highly marketable qualiﬁcation. This course is universally acknowledged as an indication of competence and achievement in understanding human thought and behaviour that can be applied in a variety of people-oriented vocations.
Graduating with this qualification, however, will not allow you to call yourself a ‘psychologist’. This requires further study involving an honours course (4th year of study) and then an accredited Psychology Board of Australia pathway.

“CQUniversity is not only somewhere that you can learn about your chosen subject but also about yourself. It’s really easy to get on with people and make new friends, because like me, everyone comes from a different part of the world.”
