Choosing your courses
Get ready for study and check out what courses are offered by the School of Psychology.
Find out about your study options—you can choose to study psychology in a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Psychology, or Bachelor of Science.
You have a number of options for studying undergraduate psychology with us. You can choose between a Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Psychology (BPsyc), or a Bachelor of Science (BSc). Each of these degrees gives you different options depending on which courses you'd like to combine with your psychology courses. The BSc is the best choice if you're more interested in science subjects, the BA if you're keen on social sciences and arts subjects, or the BPsyc if you want to focus on psychology.
Study psychology to understand behaviour—how we think, feel, and act. Learn how our biology and our environment interact to make us who we are.
Our Bachelor of Psychology is the only one of its kind in Aotearoa. The structure of a required major with a set of optional complementary majors allows you to tailor the degree to suit your interests and career goals.

You can combine psychology majors with many other subjects. You could complete a conjoint degree, a double major, or add a minor subject.
If you are already thinking about postgraduate study, it’s a great idea to talk to us about your course choices for your undergraduate degree. We can help you make sure you’re prepared for further study.
You can study individual psychology courses without enrolling in a degree or diploma programme, although you will still need to meet the entry requirements for that course. A Certificate of Proficiency (CoP) can be granted for every course passed. The CoP can be a stand alone qualification, or in the future you can credit the courses you have passed to a degree or diploma.
