You will be well placed to develop specialist legal practice in a wide range of fields including forensic psychology; litigation; terrorism studies; and industrial law and management. The program combines the study of human behaviour with the study of law. The Psychological Science component enhances the student’s specialist knowledge by providing a comprehensive understanding of psychology, including behavioural and mental processes. It offers an Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC) sequence in psychology.
