About this course

This two-year full-time program prepares you for organisational psychology practice, focusing on building skills such as critical analysis, problem solving, communication, consultation and organisational change.

Organisational psychology seeks knowledge of behaviour in organisational settings by systematically studying individual, group and processes. It employs a 'scientist-practitioner' method of inquiry, in which you'll first seek to understand behaviour within employment contexts, and then develop techniques and skills which foster employee wellbeing and organisational effectiveness.

During the program, you'll develop knowledge and skills you can apply to the development of an organisation's human resources to enhance motivation, performance and satisfaction. The skills you'll develop include effective candidate selection systems, designing and delivering training programs, introducing organisational change, designing jobs and organisational structures, and training and developing executives, managers and supervisors.

You'll develop your professional confidence through supervised clinical practice where you'll be supported through 1000 hours of placements across multiple workplace settings.

You'll graduate with the training required to meet registration requirements (including counselling and mental health) with the specialist content needed for entry to the PsyBA organisational psychology registrar program.
