MSc Social and Organisational Psychology


Streatham Campus, Exeter

The programme is taught by a successful and dynamic group of social and organisational psychologists who, individually and collectively, enjoy a world-class reputation. As one of only a few Masters programmes in the UK that is provided by researchers working at the cutting-edge of both social and organisational fields, you will not only benefit from the friendly and supportive atmosphere, but also from high quality teaching and supervision and an exciting and international seminar series and extra-curricular activities and workshops.

The MSc will equip you with an array of skills that will enable you to function as an effective PhD student or as a professional researcher or practitioner in social and organisational Psychology.

The research apprenticeship is an important feature of the programme. It will help you develop your research skills by working alongside experienced researchers and/or practitioners and writing up the research in the form of a dissertation. Although teaming up with a researcher within the department is generally advised, it is occasionally possible to engage in research apprenticeships with organizations or people outside of the University provided suitable co-supervision is established. Some of our past/current research partners include Microsoft, IBM, Rentokil, the MoD, the NHS, the Met Office, the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development and Lane4 consultancy.
