  • Overview

    This course provides an introduction to core theoretical areas in the psychology of work and organisations. It deals with organisations as systems and cultures as well as with how people function within organisations (as leaders, team workers etc.). In parallel with the lecture course is a series of workshops, through which students are facilitated to develop a dossier on an organisation of their choice. This gives an opportunity to apply the ideas in the lecture course in a practical context, and to begin to develop the analytic and evaluative skills which are necessary in organisational Assessment: Course Assessment: is through the dossier and the annual exam.
