The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) - Bachelor of Commerce double degree provides a pathway to becoming a psychologist in a commercial and/or industrial/organisational context. Students must complete the required Psychology and Commerce double degree subjects before they are eligible to move on to the Honours subjects in Psychology. The Honours subjects cover principles and applications, theory and methods, and an empirical thesis, which is undertaken throughout the entire Honours year. Students can combine Psychology and Commerce studies with other disciplines available in the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Commerce degrees. On completion of this degree, students will be able to apply knowledge of psychological principles and applications across many business areas, including the application of research methods to commercial issues in local, national and international contexts. UOW double degrees aim to broaden a student's knowledge and skill base and improve career options in competitive, increasingly interactive fields. The programs are designed to enhance a student's educational, academic and professional qualifications whilst minimising the costs of their studies.
