Master of Psychology (Organisational)

Deakin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00113B

Organisational psychologists have a unique opportunity to improve the lives of people, both inside and outside the workplace. With a deep understanding of human behaviour, relationships, leadership and change management, organisational psychologists have a key role to play in creating work environments that staff thrive in. The importance of organisational psychologists also extends beyond employee wellbeing. Their ability to improve individual and team performance, resolve conflicts using evidence-based principles, build team unity and create effective strategies for recruitment and retention makes them highly valued by employers. The course is accredited by the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC), and is the final stop in your study journey to becoming a registered psychologist. Upon graduation, you’ll have the skills, experience and professional recognition needed to apply to the Psychology Board of Australia (PsyBA) for general registration.
