What will you learn?

You will learn how to analyse the quality of work and the behaviour of employees, managers, teams and functional groups through the use of theoretical frameworks and models. You also learn how to apply interventions focused at employees, the quality of work, or the organization, enabling employees to function optimally. You will develop specific knowledge of various areas, such as work motivation, recruitment, selection, and onboarding employees, resistance to change, work-related stress, employee’ health, and job performance. You will learn to apply this knowledge in the context of behavioural and organisational change, which will consequently enable you to help employees and organisations to remain dynamic, healthy, competitive, and innovative.

Career prospects

Master’s specialisation in Work, Organisation and Health

Within companies and organisations, you will encounter economists, jurists, communication experts, policy makers: people who possess substantive knowledge of a particular field. As a graduate psychologist, you will have knowledge of these people and knowledge of their behaviour. This behaviour may be unpredictable and may be influenced by a range of things, such as emotions, trust or resistance. These are topics that are difficult to grasp, but they are of great importance for an organisation. For example, a well-thought-out intervention may not lead to the desired result, because people's behaviour does not change. Psychologists with expertise in the field of work, organisation and health play a crucial role here.


Once you have finished your studies, you will be a general psychologist. You will be able to apply the latest knowledge in complex practical situations, you will be analytical, you will be able to make informed choices on which you will be able to advise and you will also have strong social communication skills. You will have developed expertise in areas such as occupational health and safety issues, stress and health, motivation and performance, recruitment and selection, training and education, reintegration, a healthy lifestyle, HRM, organisational development and organisational consultancy.
