The MSc Occupational and Organisational Psychology is a full-time programme focusing on the psychological processes relevant to the workplace.
Drawing on current and historical theory and research, the programme will enable you to understand, describe, and predict workplace outcomes and to develop ways of improving these outcomes.
The programme features a range of modules based on the new curriculum of the British Psychological Society (BPS), including modules on ‘Well-being at Work', ‘Learning, Training and Development', as well as a module involving placement work experience.
Your learning experience will be enriched by small group lectures and seminars, career support, and a personal tutor.
This is a one-year full-time programme comprised of three terms.
The programme will cover the core knowledge areas that are stipulated by the Division of Occupational Psychology, of the British Psychological Society. These are: Learning, Training, and Development, Psychological Assessment at Work, Well-Being at Work, Leadership, Engagement, and Motivation, Work Design, Organisational Change and Development, and Professional Practice.
Throughout the programme, you will explore ways of applying theory to practice and will develop a variety of skills including: industry relevant technical skills, research skills, and interpersonal skills.
Unique to this course is a Professional Practice module, which requires you to complete a one month internship/placement within a human resource function of an organisation. This module will enable you to develop your practical and professional skills, as well as to witness the way theory can be implemented into practice. Support in finding a placement will be provided by the Careers & Business Relations team.
The learning and teaching methods will include seminar based lectures, seminar activities, guest lectures, student-led discussions, case study analysis, and other interactive methods of learning.
The course will be taught by occupational psychologists and organisational behaviour specialists, who are active industry experts, and who can enrich the learning material with their experiences. These individuals will also be academic members of staff involved in scholarly activity to support the dissemination of knowledge and contribution to that knowledge.
