    Christopher Eales

    Bachelor of Psychological Science

    I chose JCU for proximity and its reputation for excellence. The depth and breadth of knowledge of the lecturers and tutors in the Psychology department introduced new concepts beyond what I thought I knew about psychology.

    Patrick Twivey

    Bachelor of Psychological Science

    I chose to study at JCU as I knew of the great reputation it has for job success and educational outcomes. The small class sizes mean that the lecture and tutorial staff are more accessible if you have any questions. One highlight so far is learning about biological processes and how these drive behaviour.

    Whether you are interested in research or becoming a clinical psychologist, a Bachelor of Psychological Science at JCU provides the perfect foundation for both fields. Psychology is a broad discipline, but at JCU you can tailor the degree to fit your interests.

    Dr Craig Thorley


    Psychology at JCU is based in a small and friendly department where staff can get to know our students and offer them the kinds of support not found in other larger departments. I like working at JCU as it is a truly world-class university that produces research which makes a real difference to people’s lives.
