Course content

Accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS)

You’ll learn how to apply psychological theories and principles to the work environment to improve performance and productivity. These skills will set you up for a career in organisational effectiveness. Both of these courses can involve a dissertation in a real-world organisation, which will demand effective communication, negotiation and project-management skills.

Recent dissertations include a performance management project for a large organisation, working with a company in the insurance sector on change management, and a review of a law firm’s reward system.

The MSc Occupational Psychology degree is recognised by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and helps you on your way towards chartered psychologist status. Although the MSc Work Psychology is not recognised by the BPS it will help you develop the skills you need for research and practice as an occupational psychologist and is typically the route taken by international students.
