Teaching future psychologically literate professionals with advanced initiatives and practical experience
Griffith’s School of Applied Psychology is recognised as one of the leading departments of psychology in Australia. A number of teaching initiatives in the School of Applied Psychology have been benchmarked as national best practice, and our staff have received national awards for excellence in teaching. Students have the opportunity to engage in work-integrated learning at all levels of training
In 2014, Griffith University was the only Australian university listed in the international top 20 for research in the American Industrial-Organizational Psychologist journal.
The School of Applied Psychology offers you the choice to commence your undergraduate degree in either Trimester 1, 2, or 3. All students complete the same initial Foundation Year, which enables easy transition between our vast suite of degrees if you decide on a different career path. We offer degrees in Psychological Science, Counselling, Suicidology and Psychology, as well as double degrees combining Psychological Science and Business, Exercise Science, Law, or Criminology and Criminal Justice. You can also fast track an added Masters qualification in only 4 years, with our vertically integrated B. Psych. Sc. and Master Rehabilitation Counselling or Master of Mental Health Practice.
These students also undertake external placements in public sector departments and agencies, boutique consultancies, not-for-profit and private organisations, where they apply their skills to areas including organisational development, change management, human factors, recruitment and selection, and learning and development.
Clinical Psychology postgraduates complete internal placements in clinics at the Mount Gravatt or Gold Coast campuses where they see adult and child clients who require assistance with a range of mental health and related difficulties or cognitive or developmental assessment. Clinical postgraduates also complete external placements in a range of government and non-government organisations.
