Course description

Course module details >> 

For students without a BPS accredited degree, MSc Managerial Psychology offers you the opportunity to study alongside the students of MSc Organisational Psychology and gain a fascinating look at the science of how people and groups behave at work.

A deeper understanding of organisational psychology is an asset to anyone currently working in the field of social sciences or human resource management, or thinking of studying to become an occupational psychologist.

This course gives people with an appropriate background the theoretical knowledge and practical skills used in organisational psychology to help them develop or change careers.

You learn about training, organisational development, employee relations and motivation, design of environments/health and safety, human/machine interaction, counselling and personal development, performance appraisal and career development, and selection in organisations.

You study with students on the MSc Organisational Psychology course, which will enhance your experience, but you do not need to register with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
