Overview

Network learning at Birkbeck differs from traditional distance learning, as it includes attendance at termly weekend workshops and tutor-facilitated computer conferencing, in addition to online materials. The five weekend workshopsare an integral part of the network learning programme and cover topics such as life career development, organisational change, and employee relations and motivation.

Teaching on the course is informed by cutting-edge research in the field and you will be encouraged to engage in critical thinking and to reflect on theory and practice. You will also acquire applied research skills in preparation for an independent research project on a subject that interests you. 

In the Organizational Psychology programme at Birkbeck, University of London, you will be taught by leading academics and practitioners who have a wealth of experience in supporting and encouraging students who are studying in the evening and via network learning. Ours is a friendly, welcoming community of learners who are keen to work hard, share their professional experience with classmates and network and make contacts.

This course is also available for full-time accelerated network learning over one year. 

Highlights

  • This degree provides the materials to enhance or develop your career in organisational psychology, management, human resources, training and development or consultancy.
  • Accredited by the British Psychological Society as providing the knowledge base for progress towards professional qualification as an occupational psychologist.

  • Celebrating our 55th anniversary, Birkbeck's Department of Organizational Psychology was the first department of occupational psychology in the UK.
