The world of work is changing rapidly, posing new challenges for both employees and organizations. Students in the Organizational Psychology specialization learn how to help people and organizations take on those challenges, recognize and create opportunities, and thrive and flourish.
The Organizational Psychology specialization is organized by the Organizational Psychology expertise group.
Central to the group’s research and teaching is the link between theory and practice: researchers aim to produce and disseminate knowledge that is grounded in rigorous research and theory and offer clear perspectives for interventions to improve organizational life. The group studies diverse topics such as motivation, leadership, goal pursuit, proactive behavior, stress and well-being at work, lifespan development and the aging workforce, wellbeing, personality, and creativity. To study this wide range of topics, they employ a variety of methodologies, including (longitudinal) field surveys, diary studies, and laboratory experiments.
The group is characterized by a high degree of diversity: with a broad expertise from a variety of research backgrounds, team members from all over the world, and a wide array of research methods.
The Research Master with specialization Organizational Psychology is part of the theme Understanding Societal Change within a multidisciplinary programme.
