Griffith’s School of Applied Psychology is recognised as one of the leading departments of psychology in Australia. The focus of the School is on innovative applications of psychology which we promote through an emphasis on work-integrated learning and skills development taught by a comparatively high proportion of professional psychologists.
The School is equally committed to its two core activities of teaching and research. A number of teaching initiatives in the School have been benchmarked as national best practice, and many of our staff have received national awards for excellence in teaching. The School is committed to providing our students with a rich learning experience that lays the foundations for a range of career options. Applied Psychology has many leading researchers with international reputations, who contribute to a stimulating learning environment at the cutting edge of our field.
The School of Applied Psychology is engaged in an extensive program of research activities in areas such as clinical, organisational, health, social, developmental and cognitive-neuropsychology.
An engaged and diverse community of postgraduate and doctoral students conducts research projects across the discipline of psychology under the supervision of experienced academic staff.
