This course focuses on key areas of psychology including perception, cognition, emotion, personality, behaviour, and interpersonal relationships. This knowledge is applied to various spheres of human activity, including issues related to daily life such as family, education and work, and the treatment of mental health problems. The Bachelor of Psychology emphasises the application of knowledge to problems arising in professional practice, and graduates are able to apply for provisional registration upon graduation. The fourth year of this course includes a research component and gives students more opportunities to learn applied skills. In addition, students undertake advanced study in selected areas of psychology, and in relation to professional development. Course Learning Outcomes Apply psychological theory to evidence based practice and extend the boundaries of knowledge through research. Discriminate between valid discipline knowledge and questionable esoteric theory and practice. Apply logical and rational processes to critically analyse problems and generate innovative solutions to psychological questions. Access, evaluate and synthesise relevant information and evidence from a range of sources applicable to psychology. Communicate effectively with individuals, groups and communities. Select and effectively use appropriate technologies relevant to psychological research and practice. Demonstrate ability for self-directed learning and reflective practice. Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of international perspectives in psychology. Demonstrate understanding and respect for human rights and cultural diversity. Independently and collaboratively apply professional skills in an ethical manner. Duration The course length is four years full time or part-time equivalent. Course Requirements No prior study in a particular subject is required. Applicants must meet the University s standard entry requirements, which include English competency. Desirable: Mathematics 2C/2D. There are two fourth year streams. The Bachelor of Psychology stream requires students to achieve an average of 60% across the psychology units in second and third year.

You will be well supported by unit materials that will prepare you for the activities you will do in the face-to-face sessions each week. Assessment tasks with feedback will help you to achieve the unit outcomes. We hope this unit will inspire students to think about how the body works in an integrated and functional way, and provide a solid framework on which to build in other units in your particular course Introduction to Psychology 100 This is a first year unit which is a core unit for many students in the Faculty of Health Sciences, and studied as an option unit by students from many other Faculties. The unit will provide an introduction to the study of human behaviour. During semester you will study a number of aspects of human behaviour and develop an understanding of how characteristics of an individual, and the people around them, can influence behaviour. You will also examine some of the underlying processes necessary for behaviour change Foundations for Professional Health Practice 100 This unit will start to prepare you for a career as a health professional, by exploring the foundations needed for the safe, high quality, ethical care of clients, including individuals, groups, communities and companies. It is important for all health professionals to have an understanding of the system in which they practice and this unit will introduce you to the health care system in Australia as well as exploring comparisons with international health care systems. Finally, this unit will prepare you for success in your course by exploring the motivations behind your career decisions and by providing you with the academic skills to demonstrate your knowledge and skills through oral and written communication Science and Professional Practice in Psychology 100 This unit examines the relationship between the science and practice of psychology, the significance of scientifically conducted research and the importance of ethics to psychology. Lectures in this unit address topics such as responsibility and ethics, experimentation, correlation and causation, and evaluating and disseminating research. Guest lecturers provide an insight into the career opportunities for graduates of psychology and the practice of psychology as a profession. A key component of this unit will be to examine your own understanding of good science and ethical conduct in psychology Indigenous Cultures and Health 130 In this unit students will examine culture and diversity within local, national and global, Indigenous populations; impacts of specific policies and historical events on Indigenous Australians and their effects on health and health care access. Students will analyse health outcomes of Indigenous Australians and explore underlying social determinants, and how health professionals can work collaboratively/in consultation with Indigenous individuals, families, communities and organisations Evidence Informed Health Practice 100 Evidence Informed Health Practice 100 is a foundation unit in your health sciences degree. As health science graduates, many of you will be responsible for providing information or making decisions that influence the health and health care of individuals, groups or communities. Regardless of whether your future work is in the laboratory, a hospital ward or in the community, it is vital that you make informed professional practice decisions. You will do this by understanding the questions that you need to answer, identifying the different types of scientific evidence available, critically evaluating the evidence and determining its value in answering your questions.

4 Brain and Behaviour 100 The aim of this unit is to develop your interest in, and understanding of, the scientific study of human behaviour. You will learn about the brain, some major areas of investigation and the progress which has been made in them. Teaching will be structured around some core areas and concepts (eg the evolution, structure, and development of the brain, major neural networks) and provide you with opportunities to apply your developing knowledge to real life cases Health and Health Behaviour 100 The aim of this unit is to introduce you to health and for you to develop an understanding of the many factors (that surround people and that are within people) which influence physical health, mental health and social well-being. These factors impact on the health of everyone individuals, families, communities and even whole populations. For every person who is unwell, there is often a complex story about the many and varied factors which have contributed to their health issues Foundations of Psychology 124 The aim of this unit is to develop your interest in and understanding of the scientific study of behaviour, and to introduce you to some of the major areas of psychological investigation and the progress which has been made in them to date. No unit in psychology will give you a complete understanding of yourself or of other people, but it should encourage an attitude of enquiry and concern which will enable you to use your knowledge of psychology in forming a better and more realistic understanding of yourself and those around you Psychology of Learning 211 This unit deals with the principles of learning and motivation. How do we learn? We answer this question initially by looking at animal models of learning and applying them to human learning. In addition you will look at more complex forms of human learning, the interaction with motivation, and its applications in therapy, parenting and education. One component of this unit will be to examine your own learning style, recognise your strengths and weaknesses and develop strategies to help you with the rest of your degree Social Psychology 212 A key focus of this unit is to apply the principles of social psychology to everyday life, using both historical examples and current issues to examine the sometimes baffling and counterintuitive findings. For example, why is it that people are less likely to receive help if more people are available to give help? Why do people sometimes agree to things they know to be inaccurate? Why do people enjoy a boring task more when they are paid less for doing it? How can a regular person be led to commit horrific and violent acts against other people? These are just a few of the many questions at the heart of social psychology Psychological Science 210 This is the first of several research methods units that you ll take in the BPsych and BSc (Psychology) and BCom (HRM & IR) courses at Curtin. In these units you will examine how psychologists know the things they claim to know (including how they assess the efficacy of their techniques and treatments), and begin evaluating the evidence on which these claims are based. Although we will cover many different topics along the way, this unit, and those that follow it, are ultimately about developing your scientific literacy, and equipping you with the tools and knowledge needed to be able to sort science from pseudoscience; to discriminate between sense and nonsense Perception 221 This unit asks whether the reality of consciousness (what we perceive to be out there) is the same as the reality in the external physical world (what is out there). Though we examine other senses briefly the focus of the course is on visual and auditory perception. Topics include the biological basis of sensation and perception, perception of colour, size, form, depth and motion as well as smell and touch. In the lectures and laboratories we explore situations in which the perceptual system can be tricked and discuss how the errors we make can reveal the principles underlying our perceptual experience. Students are introduced to traditional as well as contemporary theories of perception and action Child Development Psychology 213 This unit introduces you to the psychological development of children from birth through adolescence. Major theoretical frameworks and research addressing cognitive, social, emotional and physical development are examined Psychological Science 220 The essential techniques discussed in this unit are those of Correlation and Regression. Our focus will be on questionnaire design and analysis. The course begins with a discussion of the Correlational Approach in Psychology and issues in scale development. You will then move on to explore some of the more common multivariate techniques in which reasonably large numbers of measurements are made on each participant. Two broad types of multivariate techniques are discussed Individual Differences 311 In this unit you will be explore how individuals differ psychologically, with a specific focus on personality and intelligence. As part of this unit you will have the opportunity to engage in a number of personality and intelligence tests Advanced Psychological Science 310 This unit provides introduction to qualitative design and data analysis in psychological research Cognition 323 Cognition 323 concerns the scientific study of how we attend, perceive, remember, imagine, think logically, solve problems, communicate, and plan and execute action! In this unit you will focus on a particular selection of topics: the nature of memory, the psychology of language, explanations for the mind s limited capacity for cognitive processing, visual imagery, and the relation between mental activity, brain structure, and function Abnormal Psychology 327 This unit provides an introduction to the symptoms, diagnosis, and aetiological theories of a range of psychological disorders in adults and children. The unit strongly emphasizes the scientist-practitioner model and the framework of evidence-based treatments Indigenous and Cross Cultural Psychology 328 Psychology has developed in a western context, particularly in the USA. Psychological theories and practice has reflected the western dominance. This unit is designed to explore the extent to which theory and practice are etic (applicable to all cultures) or emic (culture specific) Work, Family and Community 336 In this unit you will adopt an ecological perspective to understand the psychological relationship between work, family, and community Adult Developmental Psychology 323 This unit follows on from Child Development and explores the psychological development theories through adulthood. The areas of cognitive, social and personality development are examined. In addition this unit covers the psychology of vocation and career development; the role of family; death and dying; and mental health in older adults.

5 Advanced Psychological Science 320 In this unit you will explore qualitative and mixed methods psychological research. The theoretical perspective provided in the lectures will be supplemented with practical experience in conducting and analysing qualitative and mixed methods psychological research in the laboratories and assessments Psychology Honours Dissertation 491 This unit involves the preparation of a research proposal under the guidance of your supervisor Advanced Topics in Applied Psychology 421 The primary focus of this unit is to ensure that you can develop the necessary skills to apply and use theory in practice. The unit provides you with the opportunity to apply the theoretical learning of the past 3 years in a real world setting Quality Assurance in Psychological Research 441 This unit covers issues that affect the quality of research. It will enhance your ability to design and conduct research and to appreciate the factors that affect the success of research in applied settings. This unit is also based on the assumption that you have an ethical obligation to understand and to be able to critically evaluate the research that informs your practice of psychology. Even if you do not undertake research after graduation, you will still need to practice psychology in an informed manner (evidence based practice) Psychology Dissertation 493 During the year you will complete Psychology Dissertation 493 in semester 1 and Psychology Dissertation 494 in semester 2. Psychology 493 consists of the preparation of a group research project, while in Psychology Dissertation 494 you work towards completion of the project and submission of your individual dissertation Introduction to Counselling 421 This unit has two components. The first is an introduction to a range of psychological interventions. The nature of these interventions is investigated in the social and historical context. A second aim is to establish the basic counselling skills involved in interview and consultation processes in a conceptual framework that allows flexibility and understanding of the helping and change processes, and the acquisition of basic helping and interpersonal communication skills that underpin the majority of the main theoretical systems Psychology Honours Dissertation 492 In this unit you will continue with your research project and prepare your dissertation Psychology Dissertation 494 Students jointly conduct the research planned in the associated unit Psychology Dissertation 493 and write up an individual account in the form of a dissertation. Students are also required to submit a reflective journal on the group process Psychological Assessment 423 This unit focuses on the theory and practice of psychological testing and assessment relevant to professional practice as a psychologist in a range of professional settings Contemporary Professional Development 422 Contemporary professional Development deals with issues that affect the practice of professional psychologists.
