Delivery and assessment

You have an active role in your learning experience. Delivery includes lectures, seminars, guest speakers, article discussion groups, and presentations, followed by a three-month dissertation period. Assessment is by a mixture of examination and coursework, including written assignments and presentations. Successful completion of the taught element of the programme leads to the award of the Diploma or allows you to continue for the award of the MSc by completing a 15,000-word dissertation based on an original research question agreed by yourself and your supervisor. The project should reflect your own understanding and knowledge of selected topics learnt during taught modules.

Career opportunities

On completion of this course students will be ready and able to contribute innovative solutions to many businesses, governments and society.
The specialist knowledge they acquire in behavioural science will be invaluable in building long-term careers in business (e.g. human resource management, advertising, regulation, consumer marketing, social marketing and survey research) and those who wish to inform the design and implementation of public policy.
The course also provides an excellent entry for those thinking of progressing to doctoral research in this area.

Industry demand for skills

- Policy: The Cabinet Office has a Behavioural Insights team, which draws on insights from the growing body of academic research in the fields of behavioural science and psychology. The concepts and methods employed by the Behavioural Insights team are now being adopted in other countries and amongst those involved in policy implementation more generally.

- Marketing and Market Research: Key skills desired in marketing and market research include the ability to apply behavioural theory and methods to understand product pricings, promotion, and consumer perceptions. Part of this involves the understanding of the characteristics of customers, so that they can be grouped and targeted in customised ways.

- Human Resources: There is a demand for skills within organisation development, organisation design, resourcing and talent development as well as employee engagement within the HR environment.

- Survey Research: Government, state agencies, and businesses have demonstrated a strong demand for high quality survey data. Companies delivering this service seek sophisticated survey operations skills including knowledge of data collection modes, survey design, survey completion behaviour, formatting, quality control, and distribution.

- Business: Business and management careers now place increasing value on the capacity to apply behavioural insights to business challenges and to gather evidence using experimental methods.

Global governance, a specialization of the master International Relations, seeks to understand the ways in which order is established, maintained and transformed in the global sphere. The study of global governance addresses the problem of how 'orders of governance' are constituted and operated in contemporary and historical settings. From this perspective, order is understood as the outcome of particular ways of managing, organizing and governing global political spaces which can no longer be understood in terms of the absence of an overarching authority (i.e. the idea of anarchy). It involves the interaction between interests expressed by governments and international institutions, as well as the role of non-state actors. Historical, constructivist, and poststructuralist methodologies, as well as multilevel governance approaches are applied to interpret the interplay between a broad array of dynamic public, private and transnational interests in creating order in the world.

Why in Groningen?

This Master's specialization Global Governance elaborates the IO-perspective offered in the BA- programme IRIO. The department has built explicit expertise in this field together with the world society perspective. Students are stimulated to study these approaches and to contribute to improved insight. The specialization also helps you to organize an internship at relevant organizations, which gives you a chance to experience the dynamics of organizations operating in an international context.

Job perspectives

The Master's specialization is broad in scope and gives students a solid foundation in international relations. There is consequently a wide range of employment opportunities for International Relations graduates. The most obvious profession is a policy advisor, but you could also become a researcher, lobbyist, diplomat, or PR officer. You can work in international business, non-profit or government organizations, in the media, and at a university or a private research institute.

If you choose to specialise in organisational psychology, you'll be focusing on organisational and personnel (human resources/employee) psychology. Organisational psychologists are experts in aiding organisational effectiveness by improving the well-being of their employees. During your MAppPsy(Org), you'll learn how to carry out applied organisational research. This research relates to areas like job or competency analyses and surveys. You'll learn how to evaluate organisational and human resource (personnel) interventions.

Throughout your studies, you'll become familiar with how organisational psychology initiatives relate to an organisation's wider goals. You'll develop your ability to analyse and to carry out library research effectively. You'll refine your skills in presenting proposals and reports, both in writing and orally.

At Waikato, you'll have the opportunity to gain practical experience during your studies. You'll undertake projects in different organisations and you'll be able to join a professional network site called IO-net.

Waikato MAppPsy(Org) students learn from experts in the field of organisational psychology – Professor Michael O’Driscoll and Dr Maree Roche.

Course structure

Students in the MAppPsy(Org) must pass the equivalent of 240 points, including a 90-point thesis in their second year.

The remaining points come from the compulsory taught papers in Organisational Psychology and from other elective papers chosen in consultation with the Convenor of the Organisational Psychology programme.

Up to 120 points of the MAppPsy(Org) may be waived for students who have already completed four-year degrees (for example, an honours degree or other four-year undergraduate degree) provided that:

No required papers are waived, unless the student has already taken these papers (or equivalent papers) in their fourth year of study, and at least 195 of the 240 points must have been in psychology papers.
