    Master of Sexology (Professional)

    About

    This course provides specialist knowledge and skills in sexology. You will examine research on the biological, psychological and social aspects of human sexuality, and study different research methods. Ethics in sexology are also highly prioritised.

    Youll study many of the same units as the graduate certificate and graduate diploma. You will develop a variety of intrapersonal, interpersonal and professional skills to support you work in sexology. This includes specific skills related to sexual health education and counselling. Common sexual issues and difficulties will also be addressed.

    After studying these units, you will undertake a supervised placement where you can apply your learnings in a professional setting, as well as a capstone unit where youll work on an industry project such as a program plan, policy analysis or health impact assessment.

    When you graduate, youll be conversant in the key aspects of sexology as a public health issue and be able to seamlessly integrate your learning into your professional discipline.

    Note: media material of a sexually graphic nature is utilised in this course.

    Please refer to the handbook for additional course information.
