The Master of Professional Psychology provides selected psychology graduates with training in the skills required to meet the core competencies outlined by the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) as necessary to practice as a generalist psychologist. The two-year program includes coursework subjects addressing psychological assessment, interventions and related professional skills; with a research project and practical placement experience in the second year. Upon completion, graduates will be eligible to undertake one year of supervised generalist practice – enabling them to progress to full registration as a psychologist.
