Gain a prestigious Masters degree in Organizational Psychology

by distance learning

This distance learning course in Organizational Psychology focuses on the social and psychological processes operating in organizations. Drawing on current and classic theory and research, the course enables you to understand organizations and develop ways of improving them.

Redeveloped in 2014, the course features a range of new modules including 'Understanding organizations and change', 'Employee relations and motivation', and 'Leadership and performance management'. Your study experience is enriched through online seminars and discussions and a personal tutor.

Benefit from fully supported online learning

On your home computer, you can watch the same lectures as those given 'live' to postgraduate students studying on campus at the University of London, accompanied by PowerPoint slides. You are also supported by:

- tutor-led online seminars for each module.

- a personal tutor who provides general guidance throughout your studies.

- extensive, purpose-written study materials.

- an online facility for submitting essays and mock exams to your tutor.

- access to world-class online library facilities.

- optional face-to-face seminar and exam revision session in London (held in February/September respectively).

Developed by leading academics at Birkbeck, University of London

The programme is developed by academics within the Department of Organizational Psychology at Birkbeck, University of London. The department is the oldest and largest of its kind in the UK and makes a major contribution to research in the field of behaviour at work. It is a major provider of academic and professional training in organizational psychology (also known as occupational psychology) and career management.

Employment routes

Graduates of this course go on to become trainers, motivators, careers advisers, managers and consultants within large multinational companies, government departments, or in any organization where advanced knowledge of organizational psychology may be useful.

Singapore-based Organizational Psychology graduate Janet Wong said: "The course not only covered relevant and practical modules that I'm passionate about which I can apply in my job, but also provided me with the ease of studying almost anywhere in the world."

Study at your own pace

Provided you complete the Masters or Postgraduate Diploma within five years, you can study at your own pace. As a guide, if you wish to complete in the minimum study period, you should be prepared to study 20 hours per week during the academic session. Academic sessions run from September until July in 2014-2015.
