Psychologists seek to understand how the mind works and why people behave the way they do. Speech, hearing and language professionals have the privilege of helping people to communicate with others. Both professions seek to provide strategies that can help people lead happier, healthier and more productive lives.
This prestigious and interdisciplinary double degree is ideal for those who wish to develop a substantial skillset in both psychology and speech, hearing and general linguistics. Such skills will prepare you for a career in specialist fields such as clinical psychology, clinical neuropsychology, organisational psychology and professional psychology, as well as for clinical work or research in audiology and speech language pathology, forensic speech science, and the development of associated speech and hearing technologies.
