Psychology, criminology and social sciences
For the ‘people people’
Are you driven to understand the way people think – the inner workings of the mind, and the way that humans tick? Studying psychology, criminology or social sciences could be an ideal way to harness that curiosity and establish a brilliant career that’s one-part analytical skills and one-part empathy and human understanding.
Innovative, practical, and rooted in frameworks used in industry, our psychology programs enable you to provide support across a variety of settings. If criminology is more your speed, you’ll explore criminal intent, and meld the psychology behind offending with elements of criminal justice to prepare for a fast-paced, rich career. The study of social sciences dives deep into relationships, how we interact with one another, and how this impacts the functioning of our society.
Whether you choose to study one of these disciplines on its own, blend them together, or supplement your studies with another area such as business, you’ll be establishing a strong, empathetic, compassionate, and analytical approach that will allow you to shine in industry.
For those who want to help others, no matter their circumstances, and make meaningful personal and societal change.
