Master of Applied Psychology (Professional) (MAppPsych(Professional))

This course adheres to a scientist-practitioner model that stresses a systematic problem-solving approach. Its objective is to prepare psychologists who are skilled in individual casework and can apply their skills and knowledge to prevention, research, development, and evaluation at the individual and system levels.

The course consists of one year of full-time study. No part-time study is possible in this course. It includes coursework, practicum, and research components. Entry to the program is very competitive and requires a recognised and accredited Bachelor of Arts degree (or Bachelor of Science degree) with at least 2A Honours in Psychology or its equivalent (e.g. an average Distinction level in a Bachelor of Psychology or Postgraduate/Graduate Diploma in Psychology/Bachelor of Psychology with evidence of an additional 6 months FTE of relevant experience).

Candidates undertake two practicums. This may include seeing clients within the University clinics or may include a workplace internship practicum by arrangement with the practicum coordinator.
