Course summary

Our MSc Organisational and Social Psychology (OSP) is a world leading master's degree programme. It addresses, at its core, the interface between social psychological processes and organisational systems, and how these shape the performance and well-being of individuals and institutions.

Through drawing on classic and contemporary social and organisational psychology research, we teach students new and critical insights for diagnosing and addressing organisational problems, explaining job performance, understanding workplace relations, and improving organisational capabilities. By pursuing this degree, you will acquire state of the art knowledge about key organisational psychology processes such as learning and creativity, organisational culture and identity, leadership, decision making, well-being, teamwork, innovation, and organisational change. You will also learn, and be able to apply, key methodologies used by psychology researchers and practitioners to investigate and improve organizations.

Taught and directed by experienced organisational psychologists, the programme is informed by cutting edge research insights as well as a rigorous approach to organisational, social and psychological theory and methodology. The programme is contextualised to reflect the public debates and societal trends that pertain to life in organisations.

The programme is of benefit to both recent graduates who wish to specialise in an applied area of psychology, and those with experience of working in organisations and organisational consultancy.

Teaching methods

LSE is internationally recognised for its teaching and research and therefore employs a rich variety of teaching staff with a range of experience and status. Each topic will be presented by an expert working practically in the field. Courses may be taught by individual members of faculty, such as lecturers, senior lecturers, readers, associate professors and professors. Many departments now also employ guest teachers and visiting members of staff, LSE teaching fellows and graduate teaching assistants who are usually doctoral research students and in the majority of cases, teach on undergraduate courses only.

Assessment

All taught courses are required to include formative coursework which is unassessed. It is designed to help prepare you for summative assessment which counts towards the course mark and to the degree award. LSE uses a range of formative assessment, such as essays, problem sets, case studies, reports, quizzes, mock exams and many others. Your assessments include examinations, essays and a final dissertation.

Careers

Recent graduates have gained employment worldwide in consultancy, international enterprises and firms, banks, government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), or have gone on to obtain PhDs and pursue an academic career.
