The School of Psychology and Social Science represents four main discipline areas: Psychology, Social Science, Counselling and Speech Pathology. The School offers courses in all levels, from bachelors to doctoral degrees, and provides service teaching within degrees in other schools at ECU. There are well developed collaborations in teaching and research across disciplines and with staff from other schools. Staff are engaged in research collaborations with external government and non-government agencies as well as commercial institutions.
Many staff in the school focus their research activities through one of our two research centres, the Social Justice Research Centre and the Lifespan Resilience Research Group.
