About the course
The Honours in Psychology degree is an academically-based programme aimed at providing students with a range of knowledge and skills within the field of research, as well as specialist areas of interest
In itself, the degree is highly marketable, as there is increasing demand for students with strong research knowledge and competencies within organisations. However, it also offers a potential alternative route towards both professional training and other careers in applied psychology. It does not offer registration as a psychometrist or registered counsellor.
A part-time option is available through Wits Plus and will be offered over a period of two years. Students are expected to complete five (5) modules successfully in order to obtain the degree. This includes one (1) compulsory module (Research Methods in Psychology); a compulsory Research Essay on an approved topic; and three (3) modules.
