This programme is especially suitable for students wishing to develop a career in personnel functions, human resource management roles or as business consultants in areas such as selection and assessment, organisational development and change and employee development.
Taught by experienced researchers and practitioners, students are given in-depth training to equip them to apply psychological theories and research to influence and inform a range of important business decisions and to operate effectively at all levels within organisations.
There is a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking and consultancy skills as well as the ability to work effectively with a wide range of organisational stakeholders. Students can choose to extend and cement their practical skills by completing a research project that allows them to apply their knowledge to an organisational issue.
Alternatively they may conduct a focused literature review that examines how psychological research and theory may be applied to a contemporary business problem.
Please note: our MSc in Work Psychology is designed for those with an undergraduate psychology degree.
Available 1yr full-time or 2-4yrs part-time (block teaching)
The course is delivered through block-teaching, with most modules lasting four full days (2 days each week, across two weeks with a further intensive practical session at the end of each Semester). This is designed to allow you to immerse yourself each topic so that you can fully appreciate how theory can be applied to make a significant difference to business clients. This also allows modules to be studied effectively by those in work who wish to study on a part-time basis (from 2-4 years depending on the number of modules that you choose to study each year).
