Do you want to learn more about people at work?
The programme will give you a deeper understanding of people and their interaction in professional life.
The programme targets national and international students with a bachelors degree and 90 credits in psychology, with an interest to specialize in one of the most important areas in modern applied psychology. A Master in Work and Organizational Psychology opens up opportunities for employment in a wide range of private and public organizations.
The programme contains elements of relevant practical activities. We have established links with public organizations and private companies in the region, and students have a valuable opportunity to interact with them at several points during the programme. We also have a range of external speakers from industry (some international) and alumni talks. The thesis research problem should have a clear link to work and organizational psychology and provides an opportunity to conduct research on real world problems with relevance to the modern workplace and organizations.
A qualified specialist in work and organizational psychology may work with the evaluation and development of organizations, with psychosocial issues, or as an internal consultant on organizational development. Since the programme has a significant element of intercultural competence, such a person could also provide important expertise in developing global strategies for multinational organizations.
Our graduates have gone on to work in a variety of environments, from modern start-up companies to large multinational organizations (including TESLA, Accenture, the United Nations, Daimler, PwC), government and charities.
