Psychology (2018)

Psychology is about understanding the behaviour and cognitive processes of people and animals in their physical, social and organisational environment. As a behavioural science, it examines the way behaviour is learned and can be changed. As a social science, it focuses on individuals within the context of families, organisations and other groups, communities, cultures and societies. As a biological science, it studies the senses (hearing, vision, touch) and how the brain and physiological systems relate to behaviour. As a cognitive science it studies perception, attention, memory, thinking and language understanding. The study of development, personality, learning and motivation are also part of Psychology.

Psychology is available as a major for the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Social Sciences and the Bachelor of Science. Psychology may also be taken as a second major or as a minor within other undergraduate degrees, subject to academic approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.

To complete Psychology as a single major for the BSc, students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Psychology, including 105 points above 100 level, and 60 points above 200 level. Students must include PSYCH100, PSYCH101, PSYCH203, PSYCH204, PSYCH211, and 60 points from PSYCH303, PSYCH304, PSYCH305, PSYCH306, PSYCH308, PSYCH309, PSYCH312 and PSYCH313.

To complete Psychology as a single major for the BA or BSocSc, students must gain 135 points in papers listed for Psychology, including 105 points above 100 level, and 60 points above 200 level. Students must include PSYCH100, PSYCH101.
