MSc. in Business Psychology
UCC offers two M.Sc. in psychology with a business focus, namely M.Sc. Occupational and Organisational Psychology and M.Sc. Business Psychology, this with a more distinctive applied approach and graduates will benefit from the strong professional emphasis. You will study alongside M.Sc. Occupational and Organisational Psychology students but to enroll in this particular course, your first degree need not be in psychology.
This is a one-year full-time or two years part-time course and is geared towards satisfying the needs of working professionals to give them a competitive edge as you develop your career as a practising occupational psychologist. You will also gain very useful input from past students who will offer insights into different applications of occupational psychology in practice. Your assessment will take on non-traditional approach such as examination, as these have little practical relevance to the kinds of challenges you will face as professionals.
Staff will be available to provide support in a practical sense and as well as strong links with industry, and the balance emphasis on critical thinking.
