The Discipline of Psychology was formed in 1999 through the amalgamation of the Departments of Psychology and Educational Psychology and the Child and Family Centre.
There are 18 full-time and approximately 25 part-time members of the academic staff and four permanent administrative staff. Fifteen undergraduate courses are offered, for which we have more than 2000 registrations per annum. There are several postgraduate options, including a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology, Honours in Psychology and professional Masters courses in Clinical, Counseling, Educational and Research Psychology. At any one time we have more than 10 Doctoral and 60 Masters students registered in the school.
The Discipline of Psychology has a vigorous and varied research programme and a good publication and grants record. Several members of staff serve on international and national professional and scientific bodies.
The Discipline’s consultation and community development activities are partly conducted through Child and Family Centre. Community and consultation services are offered by the staff and postgraduate students under formal supervision.
