Organisational Psychology is an applied field of Psychology. The Organisational Psychology department is committed to improving people-management in South Africa. We teach and conduct research on how people behave at work, and we evaluate whether public and private-sector people-development programmes are working. We retain active links with workplaces and some staff members consult regularly to organisations.
A major in Organisational Psychology opens up a variety of employment opportunities: human resource management; training and development specialist; industrial relations manager are just some of the exciting career opportunities available to our gradautes.
Organisational Psychology courses and programmes are available to Humanities students through the Faculty of Commerce. For more information, visit the Faculty of Commerce website.
