Course summary

If you’re interested in how people think and behave at work – and in helping them optimise their wellbeing and performance – this is the course for you. You’ll learn to play a key role in developing knowledge, and to influence best practice and policy in the workplace, both today and in the rapidly changing workplace of the future.

Taught by the School of Psychology and the University of Sussex Business School, you’ll gain valuable skills and knowledge in:

  • psychological assessment at work
  • learning, training and development
  • leadership, engagement and motivation
  • wellbeing and work
  • organisational design, change and development.

The course will also cover issues relevant to the future of work, bringing you the latest thinking on a range of topics such as digital connectivity, relational attachment at work, class and masculinity, attitudes to diversity, consumer psychology and modern leadership.

Accreditation

This course is seeking accreditation against the requirements for Stage 1 of the route to chartership for becoming an occupational psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS). Taking a BPS-accredited course is necessary if you wish to pursue a career as an occupational psychologist, and work towards chartered status. Those wishing to achieve Stage 1 accreditation must hold Graduate Basis for Chartership (GBC) from the BPS.

CAREERS

On graduation, you’ll be well prepared for professional practice as an occupational or organisational/business psychologist in fields such as:

  • in-house in the private sector and the public sector (MI6, military, NHS, emergency services, Government and the Civil Service)
  • test-publishing houses
  • research consultancies and institutes
  • policy think-tanks
  • management consultancy
  • HR consultancy, and within HR/people/wellbeing departments in organisations
  • self-employment.

On the course, you’re invited to meet psychologists from different industries and to attend real-world assessment days. You’ll also cover important areas relevant to the future of work including the impact of technology, attitudes to diversity and the fourth industrial revolution.
