Ne öğreneceğim?

With an ageing population, and the introduction of new systems like the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), professionals need the skills to adapt to a changing environment.

Informed by the latest developments in the sector, you’ll learn course content that is relevant and up-to-date. As a graduate, you'll come out with a complementary skill needed by government and not-for-profit organisations in human services, psychology, social work, healthcare, and social assistance.

Students have a choice of specialisations in either ageing and disability and/or criminal justice. You’ll have the opportunity to explore topics such as sociological theory, counselling, social policy analysis, as well as community-based and participatory research methods.

You'll learn from award-winning researchers in their field, at a university recognised for its world-class research in psychology and social work.

What you'll learn

The Bachelor of Psychological Science and Sociology will give you a solid foundation in the underlying principles and concepts of sociology, social policy and psychology. Professionals who can apply their knowledge from two powerful perspectives in psychological science and sociology can more readily tackle practical problems to support individuals and communities in leading happier, healthier, and more independent lives. In this degree, you will:

  • develop specialised knowledge in either ageing and disability and/or criminal justice;
  • explore topics such as sociological theory, counselling, social policy analysis and community-based and participatory research methods; and
  • solve real-world case studies relevant to the industry.

You can tailor your degree to your interests and broaden your career prospects with the choice of electives. You can select four electives from any of the University of South Australia Online degrees.

Your career

Professionals in these sectors can expect to work one-on-one with individuals or families, as well as with small to medium community groups such as neighbourhoods, schools and support groups.
