Why study this course?

In a competitive employment market, you will maximise your career options by developing specialist knowledge of human behaviour along with transferable analytical business and problem solving skills that employers are looking for. You will graduate with two qualifications, having cut two years off the time it takes you to study two degrees. If you decide either degree isn't right for you, you can exit one and complete the other.

What will I learn?

Psychology is a fascinating and diverse area of study that explores the human experience and touches upon many aspects of daily life. It seeks to answer questions about how and why we behave the way we do. The Bachelor of Psychology will help you develop a scientific understanding of human thoughts and behaviours, the processes underlying these and the relationship of these processes to the brain.

Combine this with a Bachelor of Commerce where you will develop your analytical, communication and problem-solving skills, providing you with a global perspective on business and preparing you to pursue a career within the business, government or not-for-profit sectors.
