Masters degrees in Occupational Psychology equip postgraduates with the skills to help organisations select, motivate and improve the performance of their employees.
Related subjects include Work & Organisational Psychology and Psychology of Work. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Business Studies, Social Science or Psychology.
Occupational psychologists focus on the performance of people at work and during training, helping organisations to recruit, retain and realise the potential of their human resources (HR). This includes learning to identify individuals’ abilities, support the development and deployment of appraisals and reward systems, as well as managing health, safety and the work-life balance.
You may wish to specialise in a certain aspect of Occupational Psychology. For example, some occupational psychologists advise on changing behaviours to improve customer service, while others will work more broadly.
Generally, your focus depends both on your interests and organisational needs. You might be employed within an organisation’s HR department to offer regular career counselling, or you could work as a consultant on an independent basis.
