Study psychology

Psychology is the study of the 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 how the mind works 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 sets the scene for our high quality teaching.
