An understanding of people, what motivates employees, how to resolve conflict, how to effectively assess job applications, how to counsel staff - these are skills that are vital to running a business but are often lacking.

Our Bachelor of Psychology in Business is a winning combination, a degree that brings together psychology and human resource management.

The program offers you the opportunity to complete introductory and advanced-level courses in both psychology and human resource management, with the principal focus upon the role of psychology in business. One of the main benefits that you will receive from this combination is a strengthened appreciation of the connections between psychological principles and the management of human resources.

Please note: the courses listed below are a sample only and current students should consult the USQ Handbook for their recommended enrolment patterns.
