About Organisational Psychology
Masters degrees in Organisational Psychology involve advance study of human behaviour in commercial and industrial settings.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Work Psychology, Occupational Psychology and Organisational Psychiatry & Psychology. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Business Studies, Social Science or Psychology.
Organisational psychologists are interested in how organisations function, how individuals and groups behave at work, how different factors influence organisational processes and how organisational systems can be improved.
Courses in this area offer an interdisciplinary approach to learning, combining several schools of Psychology alongside theories and methodologies from fields such as Social Science and Anthropology. They typically develop your understanding of the contextual forces within organisations and the role of organisational psychology, including political, environmental, technical, social and legal processes.
Ultimately, you’ll learn how combinations of these factors may impose upon or improve employee wellbeing, entrepreneurship, people management and customer relations.
Organisational psychologists are usually employed within organisations or as independent consultants, advising on the best type of management systems, identifying effective human resources strategies and helping organisations adapt to change.
