A student who has completed all the requirements for the Bachelor of Behavioural Science (Psychology), or another qualification which the Dean (Education) agrees is equivalent, may be accepted as a candidate for the honours degree providing a sufficiently high standard has been achieved in fulfilling the requirements for the bachelors degree.
The aims of the Honours course in Psychology are to build on earlier training to provide a broad base in contemporary psychological theory and research, to bring diverse psychology subject areas together by pointing to shared themes, issues, problems and techniques, and to enhance students' understanding of methodological and data analysis issues.
It aims to better acquaint students with the actual process of research, to show how Psychology can contribute to understanding and solving real-world problems, and to promote critical or evaluative thinking (e.g., about theory, methods, applications).

The other options for Honours are Artificial Intelligence, Biological Sciences, Criminology, Disability and Community Rehabilitation, Health, Law and Society, Management, Neuroscience, Philosophy, Sociology and Women's Studies.
