Over the past 40 years Psychology at JCU has earned a strong reputation for the integrity of its courses and the quality of its graduates. Psychology was a foundation discipline at the beginning of James Cook University in 1970 in Townsville, at the opening of the Cairns campus in 1987, and at the establishment of the Singapore campus in 2003. Across all three major tropical campuses (Townsville, Cairns and Singapore), student enrolments in psychology place the discipline as the third largest at JCU. Psychology is renowned for its undergraduate courses and postgraduate clinical programs accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council.
