What you will study

The course also considers how other disciplines such as human resource management and sociology inform occupational and business psychology.

The modules for this course investigate various approaches to applying psychological principles in the workplace and how these ideas can increase organisational, team and individual performance. You will learn to critically evaluate the evidence base when making decisions.

You will apply theories and evidence to case studies, examples from the field and real-life practice. You will also learn about ethical considerations and your role as a psychologist in organisations, enhancing your professional skills. You will complement this by learning about ways of overcoming the barriers many occupational and business psychologists face when trying to implement their programmes in an organisation.


This module introduces you to a range of elements of wellbeing across psychological sub-disciplines, and will examine the relevance of wellbeing with regards to a range of practical implications.
