Psychology Honours Specialisation

The Psychology Honours specialisation is intended for students who have successfully completed an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) accredited undergraduate sequence in psychology, and are interested in undertaking an independent psychological research. The honours specialisation is usually taken full time for two consecutive semesters and includes research training, in-depth analysis of current concepts in psychology as well as a substantial research project culminating in the production of a thesis. Honours is a solid foundation in the basics of research and can be an entry into many careers both within and outside of psychology, and a pathway to the profession of clinical psychology.
