Organisational Psychology

Course code 73324

This course provides an advanced treatment of those aspects of psychology that relate to the work environment. While it is not the objective of the course to produce industrial/organisational or business psychologists, it is assumed that most students either are, or will end up, in positions of responsibility in various organisations. Hence the practical aspects of the course aim to enhance student skills in their work environment.
