Explore human behaviour while gaining an understanding of people's wellbeing with the Psychology program from Charles Sturt University. Psychologists can be both health professionals and scientists, undertaking research and gaining insights into human behaviour and mental processes.   


The Bachelor of Psychology at Charles Sturt University can provide you with the current minimum academic requirements for provisional registration as a psychologist. We provide you with a comprehensive degree in psychology. You will acquire knowledge across a range of key areas of psychology practice, including cognition, developmental and social psychology, psychological testing, biopsychology, psychopathology, personality, learning theory and research methodology. After graduation, you'll be able to apply for provisional registration as a psychologist. 

In addition to the compulsory psychology subjects, you will also complete a minor study in another discipline to enhance your study experience. Minors are available in a range of related disciplines, including business, history and politics, justice studies and social welfare. A broad choice of psychology electives is available, including Psychology of Crime, Health Psychology, Psychology of Substance Abuse, Psychology and the Legal System and Psychology of Stress and Trauma. You may also have the opportunity to complete a supervised experience at an international university.
