Course summary

Offered for both face-to-face evening study at Birkbeck and via network (distance) learning, our highly respected MSc Organizational Psychology will develop your understanding of people and organisations within the context of both occupational psychology and organisational behaviour.

Teaching on the course is informed by cutting-edge research in the field and you will be encouraged to engage in critical thinking and to reflect on theory and practice. You will also acquire applied research skills in preparation for an independent research project on a subject that interests you.

You will be taught by leading academics and practitioners who have a wealth of experience in supporting and encouraging students who are studying in the evening or via network learning.

Network learning at Birkbeck differs from traditional distance learning, as it includes attendance at termly weekend workshops and tutor-facilitated computer conferencing, in addition to online materials. The five weekend workshops are an integral part of the network learning programme, introducing students to the content and structure for the upcoming term as well as providing an opportunity to network and work together.

Whether you join us in the evening or via network learning, ours is a friendly, welcoming community of learners who are keen to work hard, share their professional experience with classmates and network and make contacts.

The course requires a commitment of approximately 18 hours (part-time) or 35 hours (full-time) of study a week. Please discuss in your personal statement how this time will fit in alongside your existing work, family and personal commitments.

This course is also available for full-time accelerated network learning over one year.
