Study psychology

Psychology is the study of human mind and behaviours. Psychologists put that knowledge to work in all sorts of fields, from counselling to teaching and market research. When you study psychology, you’ll discover the inner workings of the mind and learn the skills to provide meaningful insight and support to others, when they need it most.

At ACU, our psychology research is ranked well-above world standard*, which means you’ll be learning from and with some of Australia’s best psychologists.
