Course content

Our MSc Work Psychology is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is designed for those wanting to develop a career as an occupational psychologist or in human resource management, personnel or business consultancy.

You will receive in-depth training by experienced researchers and practitioners to equip you to understand and evaluate a wide range of psychological theories that can be applied in organisational settings. This is integrated with practical training on how to apply relevant theory to influence important business decisions. The course covers a wide range of important business issues including change management, employee selection and development, leadership, and work motivation, well-being and performance.

Throughout the programme there is a strong emphasis on developing critical thinking and consultancy skills, as well as the ability to work effectively within a wide range of organisational stakeholders. You will extend and cement your practical skills by completing a research project that allows you to apply your knowledge to an organisational issue.

A blended learning, block teaching approach is used to make the course equally accessible to both full-time students and part-time students in full-time employment looking to further develop their career.

Completion of this BPS-accredited programme fulfils the requirements of the stage one qualification for those wishing to go on to eventually become a HCPC-registered occupational psychologist.
