This course combines an analytical approach to human resource management
with strong psychology-based modules. Software and skills training
are also integral parts of the course. These provide an excellent
range of vocational skills that can be used in employment across a
range of industries.
The course is a 1 year full-time or 2 year part-time day and evening.
This course is designed to provide students with the skills needed
to diagnose organisational human resource needs, to design and implement
human resource interventions and to build strategic human resource
goals and programmes. On successful completion of the course, graduates
should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the major approaches
to the analysis of organisations, of how to run preliminary diagnostic
analysis, of how to conduct preliminary strategic analysis, and of
how to link diagnostic and strategic analyses to organisational issues.
The course is structured around 6 core modules plus one option so
that each student will cover 7 modules in all.
The full-time programme for 2012-2013 is as follows:
Team Work for Effective Organisations
Conflict Resolution: Negotiation
Facilitated Decision Making
Management of Competency and Skill Development Programmes
The Project modules runs through Semester 1 and Semester 2.
Pattern of Attendance
Some modules are scheduled for day-time only and some for evening
only teaching, which means that students, whether full-time or part-time,
may have to be able to attend day and evening classes at some time
during the course. Part-time students will normally take two modules
in each semester for two years, although work on the Project (examined
in the second semester) may extend over both semesters in year two.
You should have a UK Honours Degree (or overseas equivalent) in Business
Studies, Psychology or related subjects; or ii qualifications from
a course of study which includes a substantial business or management
studies component, or a Diploma in Management Studies, or another
postgraduate qualification in a discipline relevant to human resource
management and business psychology.
If you do not have the above requirements but have a significant amount
of relevant work experience as well as the motivation to study at
postgraduate level, you are invited to apply for admission - your
case will be considered by the selection panel.
The course is suitable for those who want to gain a range of knowledge-based
analytical and problem solving skills and competencies.
