Specialist Diploma in Organisational Psychology

Students enrolled in the Bachelor’s degree in Psychology have the option to obtain additional specialist training in Organisational Psychology during the second, third and fourth years of study. This diploma is taught in coordination with Deusto Business School.

 

"I have had the opportunity to study the Specialist Diploma in Organisational Psychology. The Diploma runs for three years, from second to fourth year of the BA degree. Thanks to it, I have had the opportunity to know everything related to Organisational Psychology.

We should consider that a cold image of organisations has become widespread, forgetting that people are their driving force. We need to teach that organisations are key meeting places for people’s development, education and well-being.

Also, we should highlight the place that work has in our lives, since we spend most of our lives working; therefore, it should be an enriching activity. This is why I believe that there is an urging need to humanise organisations, giving Psychology the place and importance it deserves".
