A NEW “fast-track” Bachelor of Psychology course has been introduced at Chisholm Frankston.
Students with a diploma can go straight into the second year of the degree. Dean of Chisholm Higher Education College, Dr Andrew Bridges, said that the fast-track course meant that “entry-level diploma students can qualify for an Associate Degree in Psychology in one year and a Bachelor of Psychology in two years”.
“The psychology course incorporates a wide range of transferable skills that can be used in business, community, numeracy, literacy and analysis, launching students towards their chosen career path,” he said. “Psychology is a great foundation for a wide variety of areas. Not all people who study psychology become registered psychologists or work in mental health. I am an applied psychologist and my first job was designing aircraft cockpits”.
The course starts on 28 February. It is offered through “blended” study, onsite and online.
