If you’re interested in business psychology, or industrial psychology, particularly in relation to people management or HR, this Occupational and Organisational Psychology from Northumbria University course is for you.
It will allow you to explore how human behaviour affects and is affected by the functioning of workplaces and their staff and covers everything from hiring to productivity and learning on the job.
The Masters has been designed to help you to specialise after you’ve completed your existing psychology qualifications or as a conversion course from another discipline. Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) as Stage 1 Occupational Psychologist training, the MSc is suitable for students with a psychology degree, now looking to finish their qualifications and advance in a trainee Chartered Occupational Psychologist role in the UK.
It is also open to those with a different academic background, working in a career such as HR, Consultancy or Management, where a better understanding of the psychology behind workplace wellbeing, engagement, selection, assessment, and learning and development would be beneficial. Business psychology careers are a growing field and those with specialised Occupational and Organisational Psychology qualifications will be an asset to many companies.
If you currently meet the requirements for GBC, completing this BPS accredited course could take your career in a number of directions.
For some, it could open the way to a career as a Chartered Occupational Psychologist. For this, you will first need to complete hands-on Stage 2 training – the final, professional development step you need to take to qualify as a Chartered practitioner in the UK. Once qualified, you could be looking at a career that is in high demand across both the private and public sectors, working as a consultant or in-house.
