Course Summary

The School of Psychological Sciences & Health, in collaboration with the globally renowned Strathclyde Business School is offering a unique new Masters programme.

The distinctive nature of the programme lies in its flexible online mode of delivery. Successful completion of this course, accredited by the British Psychological Society, will provide students with either no background, or an unaccredited background in psychology, the route to gain Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC) with the British Psychological Society (BPS). It also provides opportunities to develop specialist knowledge in modules provided for the programme in Psychology for Business.


Assessment will be through a mixture of course work, for example, individual essays or reports, a collaborative writing task with other students, or in some cases an online quiz or a verbal presentation. Additionally, some modules will feature class exams. Supporting student learning is a priority and you'll be carefully guided through each assessment activity, with continuous feedback on your progress.


This class will provide a short history of psychological measurement / psychometrics in organisations, introducing ability testing, the theory of True Scores, and characteristics of testing. It will consider issues in intelligence testing, ability tests in occupational settings, personality testing, the use of personality tests in occupational settings and issues around questionnaire construction.
