Recognised as one of the leading departments of psychology in Australia
The School is committed to providing students with a rich learning experience that lays the foundations for a range of career options suited to students’ strengths and interests. We are leaders in psychology education in Australia, as well as offering accredited Bachelor degree training in counselling.
Our strong focus on skill-based courses and applying psychological knowledge across a broad range of professional contexts is unique, and essential if you are to provide effective assistance for people with personal, health, vocational, or social difficulties.
The School has three psychology clinics. The Griffith University Gold Coast and Mt Gravatt Psychology Clinics provide high quality, affordable psychological services for the general public. The Nyunga Centre is a joint initiative between Brisbane Catholic Education and the School of Applied Psychology, Griffith University, Gold Coast.
