RMIT University Psychology School Overview

The Master of Psychology offers you the necessary training to become a professional psychologist. It is oriented towards cognitive-behavioural psychology and you’ll be trained and expected to work according to the scientist-professional model.

In addition, you’ll be required to undertake two practicum placements off campus in supervised psychological practice (minimum of 40 days and 60 days, respectively) in agencies like hospitals, clinics and other health facilities. Casework courses and field placements comprise a minimum of 132 days of practicum experience. You’ll also do a supervised research thesis.
