Social and Organisational Psychology

The MSc Social and Organisational Psychology is provided by researchers working at the cutting-edge of both social psychology and organisational psychology. The programme is taught by a successful and dynamic group of social and organisational psychologists who, individually and collectively, enjoy a world-class reputation. You will not only benefit from the friendly and supportive atmosphere, but also from high quality teaching and supervision, an exciting and international seminar series and extra-curricular activities and workshops. The Masters programme will equip you with an array of skills which will enable you to function as an effective PhD student or as a professional researcher or practitioner in social psychology and organisational psychology. The programme forms part of the Economic and Social Research Council South West Doctoral Training Centre - a hub of world-class social science research. The research apprenticeship is an important feature of the programme. It will help you develop your research skills by working alongside experienced researchers and/or practitioners and writing up the research in the form of a dissertation. Although teaming up with a researcher within the department is generally advised, it is occasionally possible to engage in research apprenticeships with organizations or people outside of the University provided suitable co-supervision is established. Some of our past/current research partners include Microsoft, IBM, Rentokil, the MoD, the NHS, the Met Office, the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development and Lane4 consultancy.
