Course Detail

Bachelor of Cybersecurity/Bachelor of Psychological Science


Undergraduate

La Trobe's new double degree gives students the chance to complement their studies in psychological science with the highly specialised cybersecurity field.

Students will learn the essentials of cybercrime and the foundations of computer forensics as well as cyber law, policy and crisis management. They will also explore how online criminals use sophisticated techniques to deceive and manipulate individuals by gaining a deep understanding of psychology with over 20 psychology subject choices, including options for electives with leading researchers from centres like our ground-breaking Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre (OTARC).

This distinctive combination of study areas allows students to pursue a career as a professional psychologist with further postgraduate study, or build a career within the growing field of cybersecurity.

The qualification awarded on graduation is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 7.
