Work, Organisation and Health at Radboud University

The Master's specialisation in Work, Organisation and Health focuses on three specific areas, which are clearly recognisable in the professional field: occupational health psychology, personnel psychology (HRM) and organisational psychology. The Master's programme includes a focus on scientific insights as well as acquiring practical skills.
 

What will you learn?
You will learn how to analyse the quality of work and the behaviour of employees, managers, teams and functional groups through the use of theoretical frameworks and models. You also learn how to apply interventions focused at employees, the quality of work, or the organization, enabling employees to function optimally. You will develop specific knowledge of various areas, such as work motivation, recruitment, selection, and onboarding employees, resistance to change, work-related stress, employee health, and job performance. You will learn to apply this knowledge in the context of behavioural and organisational change, which will consequently enable you to help employees and organisations to remain dynamic, healthy, competitive, and innovative.
