The way we behave. The way we think. The way we react and interact. When you study psychology, you'll begin to understand the science behind human behaviour – and how we can use this science to solve practical problems in all sorts of situations.

Students considering a career in Psychology need to complete an accredited undergraduate sequence of study in Psychology (11 units) to progress to fourth year and postgraduate study in Psychology. The requirement for the accredited undergraduate sequence is completion of the Psychological Science major (8 core units, 7 of which are accredited) and a minor in Applied Psychology (4 accredited units).

Accreditation Status: The new Psychological Science sequence offered through Bachelor of Psychological Science (53F), Bachelor of Arts (A3A), Bachelor of Science (P3O), and Bachelor of Psychological Science and Bachelor of Laws (63Y) will be offered for the first time in 2019. The Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) will undertake assessment of the 3-year undergraduate sequence at the University of Tasmania in 2019. The accreditation status of the 3-year undergraduate sequence will be updated on the universities relevant course and unit web pages once APAC has informed the Division of Psychology of the outcome of this assessment. Further information on accreditation status of psychology courses can be viewed on the APAC website.
