Program overview

This dual degree is a brand new offering for students commencing in 2016. The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours)/Bachelor of Laws is a 6 year program (full-time) and provides an opportunity for students wishing to study law, who also have an interest in Psychology, to pursue both interests. In particular, students are able to study Psychology at Honours level and achieve professional recognition of that degree.   

The Law courses satisfy the requirements for the award of the professional LLB degree. The Fourth Year program in Psychology (typically taken in the fifth year of the combined program) meets the requirements of a fourth year towards provisional registration as a psychologist nationally and associate membership in the Australian Psychological Society.
