The Occupational and Organisational Psychology programme offered at the University of Liverpool draws upon the latest evidence and cutting-edge research to cover all major aspects of occupational psychology, enabling students to develop a critical understanding of how research into human behaviour at work can be applied to enhance the effectiveness of people and organisations at work.
Core areas include; leadership, motivation and engagement; well-being at work; work design, organisational change and development; psychological assessment at work; and learning, training and development.
Students also undertake a supervised empirical research project, building their knowledge of research methods in psychology and developing skills in the conduct of research in organisational contexts. In doing so, the MSc Occupational and Organisational Psychology equips students will the knowledge base and practical skills necessary for a career in occupational psychology.
The MSc Occupational and Organisational Psychology provides a clear pathway to a career in occupational psychology, and also provides a route for progression onto a Doctor of Philosophy programme. Graduates may also consider related careers in areas of human resource management and organisational development.
