    The Occupational Psychology module aims to build upon the student¿s base of knowledge regarding principles of psychology as they are applied in industrial and organisational settings. In particular, the module will provide students with an introduction to the theory and empirical evidence of occupational psychology using three organising principles: the organisation as a complex system, its processes and the people in the workplace. The module will present the students with various concepts in the study of occupational psychology such as decision making at the workplace, work motivation, stress at work, individual differences (stereotyping and prejudice at work environments) and problem solving.
