Bachelor of Psychology
Danielle Amiet is improving the university experience of today’s psychology students.
As a Monash psychology graduate herself, Danielle is uniquely qualified in her position as Assistant Course Convenor of our Bachelor of Psychology (Honours), where she now teaches the subjects she once studied. Drawing on her own recent undergraduate experiences, Danielle plays an important role in shaping the learning experience for Monash psychology students and is a passionate advocate for their needs. “Going from a student studying psychology to now teaching psychology has given me a huge advantage and insight into performing well in my job.”
Making the big move from Darwin to Melbourne, Danielle chose Psychology at Monash for “the outstanding reputation the university holds around the world”. While studying, she immersed herself in campus life and was elected president of our Neuroscience and Psychology Society (SNAPS) in her third year.
After completing honours, Danielle gained a sessional position with our School of Psychological Sciences, which she turned into teaching association position within only twelve months. “I was very lucky to build some amazing connections during my undergraduate degree, which made getting a job after graduation much easier.”
Proud of her early career achievements in academia, Danielle hopes to complete further study and eventually become a practising psychologist, but “that said, why not to pursue the best of both worlds?”
