What will you study?
You can choose to study this course in one year, with our full time programme, or in two years, with our part-time, executive weekend programme. Both courses cover the same core modules, and both are taught by research-active academics and experienced practitioners.
The modules for this course investigate various approaches to applying psychological principles in the workplace and how these ideas can increase organisational, team and individual performance. You will learn to critically evaluate the evidence base when making decisions.
You will apply theories and evidence to case studies, examples from the field and real-life practice - either at your own company or during a short internship. You will also learn about ethical considerations and your role as a psychologist in organisations, enhancing your professional skills. You will complement this by learning about ways of overcoming the barriers many occupational and business psychologists face when trying to implement their programmes in an organisation.
