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."

(Student Profile)

Miriam McCallum

I run my own small consultancy where I work as an organizational consultant, executive coach and facilitator.

I am very proud of having a University of London Masters in Organizational Psychology. The benefits include not only being better in my role, but also being able to increase my fees and win more interesting assignments. Exploring, discussing and learning new ways of thinking about research in areas such as leadership, stress, and organizational change was very illuminating.

The flexibility to pace my own studies and to study at any location was essential as I travel with my work.

I would certainly recommend this degree to anyone who is involved in human resource management. The tutors are fantastic – very passionate about their subjects and very encouraging in an online environment. I think it was amazing to be conferencing online with people across the world. It provided an international perspective to the programme – invaluable in this field of study.
