Aims of the Course
The principle aim of our courses is to equip students with a sound knowledge and understanding of a broad range of topics in occupational psychology. This knowledge includes not only the appreciation of theory and fact, but also an awareness of the strengths and limitations of research evidence. In addition to this, the methodologies used by occupational psychologists to gather and interpret evidence are covered. A particular aim of each course is to make learning available to those who are unable to pursue more conventional, campus-based higher education.
- The MSc in Occupational Psychology is accredited by the British Psychological Society.
- The course aims to equip psychology graduates with the necessary knowledge base to move onto the route for becoming a Chartered Occupational Psychologist.
