What will I learn?

Organisational psychologists inspire change and improve people’s experiences in the workplace. Studying the Master of Psychology (Organisational and Human Factors) can lead to a fulfilling career delivering professional psychological services to organisations and their people.

The degree offers a combination of coursework, research and industry placements to ensure students graduate with the skills and knowledge required to establish effective procedures and structures in organisations, and to facilitate the development of productive and committed employees, teams and work units. A unique subject in human factors provides an insight into human safety and ergonomics, and over 1000 hours of clinical placements offer the chance to develop practical skills with patients and build professional networks while studying.

Graduates of the degree are eligible to apply for full registration with the Psychology Board of Australia and meet the entry requirements to the Australian Psychological Society (APS) College of Organisational Psychologists as a full member. Organisational psychologists have a range of career opportunities in change management, human resources, human factors, workplace advice and advocacy, consumer behaviour and marketing, and other areas.
