About this course

This dual degree program allows students to combine studies in the unique and innovative Bachelor of Social Science program with a wide range of majors in the arts. For example, foreign language studies can be combined with a major in Development. The Bachelor of Social Science teaches students how to develop strategies to help find solutions to a range of social issues at the local, national and international level.

Psychology is a broad ranging discipline that includes the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes, and the systematic application of this knowledge in specific contexts such as mental health (clinical psychology), work (organisational psychology), education or sport. Many people who study psychology will not go on to become psychologists, but will find their training in psychology to be highly relevant and useful in their lives and work. Those who do become psychologists may work in a variety of settings including hospitals, schools, government bodies, large corporations, or in private practice.
