MSc Organisational and Social Psychology

About the MSc programme

This programme offers a wide range of choice in optional courses within the Department and the School so that you can deepen or widen your expertise, and take up the advanced study of particular aspects of organisations.

We will consider applicants with a good first degree in any discipline and a considered interest in the area covered by the MSc.

Please note that it is not the aim of this programme to offer a foundation level training in organisational management skills as might typically be expected from a master's degree in business administration.

Programme details

The programme consists of four course units, including compulsory and optional courses and a dissertation. A weekly professional seminar series in the Lent term provides students on the programme with the opportunity to debate with professionals, managers and consultants working on a variety of organisational contexts.

Compulsory courses

Students will be expected to choose courses to the value of one unit from a range of options.
