About this course

Are you interested in becoming a psychologist or just in human behaviour in general? The Undergraduate Certificate in Psychological Science is a 6-month full time higher education qualification designed to provide individuals the skills and knowledge in psychology required for articulation into further study, and also for professionals to upskill and enhance their employment opportunities. 

In this course students will complete four units of study, covering foundational knowledges in psychology, concepts and skills underpinning living and working in a culturally diverse environment as well as issues of sustainability on personal, professional and community levels.

This is one of four new Undergraduate Certificate courses at ACAP, developed in response to the global COVID-19 crisis to create opportunities for individuals interested in helping communities recover from adversity and to take positive steps towards their future employability. Fee help is available.
