Enjoy a range of career opportunities

Psychology will be of special interest not only to those desiring to enter the psychology profession but also to students envisaging a practical or academic career in education, ergonomics or human resource management.

A number of specialisations are available, including:

+ Cognitive Neuroscience and Health Psychology (BSc)
This major is intended to introduce students to very exciting new developments in neuroscience, cognition, perception, psychophysiology, clinical neuropsychology, and abnormal behaviour. As such, it is ideal for students who wish to take a double major in a complementary field, such as biomedical science, physiology, health, etc.

+ Social and Developmental Psychology (BA)
This major concentrates on the social and developmental applications in psychology, teaching students how individuals manage developmental tasks within dynamic and evolving social contexts. Students explore how we make sense of ourselves and others, and how the actual, imagined or implied presence of others influences our thoughts and behaviours.
