Bachelor of Psychological Science/Master of Mental Health Practice

Griffith University

In this integrated vertical degree, you'll gain a thorough grounding in the application of clinical, development, biological, cognitive, social, and organisational psychology. You'll then build on this broad knowledge base with studies in the growing specialist area of mental health practice. You'll learn the latest evidence-based research and specialised knowledge about health services for people with mental illness. You'll collaborate with consumers, carers, and mental health professionals in your studies so that you're prepared for a profession in various settings where mental health knowledge is essential. When undertaking the Master of Mental Health Practice, students will be able to complete either a Dissertation stream or Practice stream. Students completing the Dissertation stream will complete a research dissertation on an area of interest in the mental health field. This will provide students with the knowledge and skills for conducting independent research projects and the research experience necessary for those who wish to pursue a PhD or Master of Philosophy. For those students not interested in research, the Practice stream which includes coursework only may be preferred.
