About this course

This program prepares students for organisational psychology practice, focusing on building skills such as critical analysis, problem solving, communication, consultation and organisational change skills. Organisational psychology seeks knowledge of behaviour in organisational settings by systematically studying individual, group and organisational processes. Organisational psychology employs a `scientist-practitioner¿ method of enquiry, first to seek understanding of behaviour within employment contexts, and then to develop techniques and skills which foster employee well-being and organisational effectiveness.

The program combines theory, research and practice to develop students' professional skills within a broad range of strategic and functional areas, including job analysis and design, personnel selection and assessment, training and development, work design, leadership, and organisational development and change.

Careers

As a graduate, you can work in varied and challenging roles in business, the public-sector and the community. The main areas for employment include:

  • selection and recruitment
  • training and development
  • organisational development and change

The work of an organisational psychologist revolves around the development of an organisation's human resources to enhance motivation, performance and satisfaction.
