Psychology in Professional Contexts (1011PSY)

You will learn what core skills are gained through the study of psychology and how these are used in the various professional contexts that psychology graduates are qualified to work in. You will learn psychology theories that inform how people come to understand themselves as they relate to the world of work and their place in it and how this understanding of themselves can change across the lifespan. Relevant careers in counselling, community and welfare, human resources, justice, marketing, policy, professional psychology, and social research are described. You will gain skills in selecting a suitable study pathway, selecting appropriate elective courses, and identifying paid and volunteer work opportunities that will enhance your employability in these areas. You will be able to describe the role of ethics, interprofessional learning, work integrated learning, and ongoing professional development in a successful career. Additional skills are gained in building a professional profile, including through LinkedIn and other public portfolios, and in managing your public identity on social media.
