Postgraduate Diploma in Organizational Psychology, MSc Organizational Psychology
Many students on the course are already working in HR or management and wish to advance their career with an academic qualification. Others are looking to make a career change, or simply want to understand organizations better. This course gives you the opportunity to gain professional recognition and progress your career in the direction you choose.
The course uses current and classic theory and research to enable you to understand organizations, and to develop ways of improving them. Such improvements come in many forms: from selecting, training and motivating people, to maintaining and enhancing their well-being.
You're assigned a personal tutor, so support from academics is just an email away. You take part in online tutor-supported seminars, and an online facility for submitting essays and mock exams for assessment is provided. Optional workshops are held once a year in London, and a student cafe for interaction and networking with other students is available as a virtual forum.
The course has been developed by academics within the Department of Organizational Psychology at Birkbeck, the oldest and largest department of its kind in the UK. It is a major provider of academic and professional training in organizational psychology and career management.
