Overview

The BPsychSc component of this Psychological Science and Laws from University of Tasmania is a specialist program with a broad vocational orientation. The program has been designed to equip graduates with knowledge and skills relevant to their intended careers by providing an opportunity to undertake a minor in relevant disciplines in conjunction with their psychology major. The BPsychSc component also provides preparation for further study in postgraduate programs such as counselling, criminology and corrections, health management, marketing, rehabilitation counselling, and social work, or in psychology.

The Bachelor of Laws component is the basic academic preparation for persons who wish to enter the legal profession and other careers involving legal work. The course also has wider applicability in developing the attributes and skills inherent in a general university education. Students develop the values and intellectual abilities necessary to marshal facts and to critically assess and evaluate information, theories and doctrines thus preparing themselves for a variety of career roles.

Career

A law degree is a prerequisite to admission as a legal practitioner. Today, however, employers from a widening range of disciplines value the skills that law graduates possess. A range of career choices lie open to law graduates as a solicitor, barrister, industry legal officer or ministerial adviser, as well as in legal aid, community legal centres, the Attorney-General's department, law reform commissions, consumer affairs, environment, foreign affairs, police, legal drafting, politics, banking, finance, journalism, publishing and teaching.

BPsychSc graduates have knowledge, analytical, research and interpersonal skills with a high degree of application in areas such as health, education, justice, welfare, business, employment and training. Students are able to structure their course to incorporate a major, minor or student electives in areas which suit their career choice, or to equip them for a range of career options. Graduates are also able to progress to postgraduate training and careers in professional areas, such as counselling, criminology and corrections, social work and psychology.
