The MSc Management Psychology programme is designed around three critical management activities: developing effective workers, identifying competent workers, and managing productive organisations. You will also learn about the scientific foundations of psychology and how to use psychological theories and methods. The course is offered on a part-time, flexible learning basis over 24 or 36 months. Face-to-face teaching, tutorials, and workshop-based teaching with experts are both supported and enhanced by an e-learning environment.

For the course you will require: a personal computer with a word-processing programme; email and internet access; a printer; the ability to be organised and work independently, and a willingness to engage in teamwork.

Programme structure

You will complete 120 credits of taught modules plus an empirical research project worth 60 credits on topics relevant to your specialist area of interest.

The programme is organised in workshop-based modules. Modules vary from 10 and 20 credits. Twenty credit modules are organised over two weeks with face-to-face teaching taking place during two consecutive weekends and three weekday evenings. Ten credit modules require face-to-face teaching over one weekend and three weekday evenings. The schedule for the different modules will be published in advance so that you can plan your time accordingly.

The timetable for taught modules for the year ahead will be published each August. Your empirical project will be planned in the final semester of study.
