    Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Psychology


    Undertake a PhD in Psychology

    Generate new knowledge through scientific research

    Undertake a Doctor of Philosophy specialising in Psychology and gain the skills to undertake independent, ambitious research. You will have the opportunity to develop world class research skills and make a significant difference to what we know about human behaviour across multiple domains - e.g., in clinical, legal, and social settings.

    Students develop statistical, presentation, and writing skills over the course of their degree, giving them the ability to communicate complex scientific ideas to both the scientific community and the general public. Students are supported throughout their degree by a supervisor who is an expert in their field, providing inspiration, mentoring, and pastoral support.

    The Master of Arts (Women's Studies) offers a combination of coursework and a minor thesis. Topics cover areas such as feminist questions, gender and international development, Indigenous women, and media analysis.
