Are you a Psychology graduate looking to work as an Occupational Psychologist? This advanced course gives you a route into occupational psychology accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).

The MSc Organisational Psychology takes the psychological principles and theories you learned in your first degree and helps you apply them to the world of work. As well as increasing your knowledge, the course arms you with the theoretical understanding and practical skills required by the Division of Occupational Psychology of the BPS in the following eight required areas: training, organisational development, employee relations and motivation, design of environments/health and safety, human/machine interaction, counselling and personal development, performance appraisal and career development, and selection in organisations.

Duration: 12 months full-time or 24 months part-time.

Progression and assessment Assessment across the course units varies, but includes a combination of examinations, essay style and other forms of coursework and, in some cases, assessed presentations. A dissertation of between 12,000 and 25,000 words is also normally undertaken
