Research School of Psychology
Programs and Courses
The ANU School of Psychology offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses that give our students world-class education and training in a variety of areas of psychology.
Our programs cover the broad spectrum of the scientific study of human behaviour. Our general first year courses introduce you to the types of problems studied in psychology, and provide background in the methods employed to study them. In later-year courses you will cover more specialised subject matter and be trained in more advanced techniques.
Graduate and Postgraduate
Broadly, the ANU terms any course or program undertaken above a fourth year (Honours) level as Graduate study. However, internationally and at the ANU, programs undertaken at Masters and PhD level are often also known as Postgraduate studies. Here at the School of Psychology we use the terms Graduate and Postgraduate to refer to any program undertaken above fourth year (Honours) level.
The Graduate Diploma in Psychological Studies is designed for students who have completed a non-psychology degree in the last ten years which included 1st year psychology.
