Undergraduate lecture

Undergraduate study in Organisation, Work and Technology

Pragmatic and theoretical insights into tomorrow’s human, technological and organisational landscapes.

About Organisation, Work & Technology at Lancaster

Our three departmental degrees are designed to give you a broad appreciation of management theory and practice combined with specialised knowledge of either human resource management, management and information technology, or organisational behaviour. And you'll be able to broaden your knowledge by including modules from other management areas – or other disciplines entirely.

Our degrees provide a balance of theory and practice and prepare you for work upon graduation. While the Management and IT degree requires a placement year in industry, our two other degrees allow you to choose a placement year as an option. Our department has one of the strongest research groups of its kind both in the UK and abroad. You will thus be taught by some of the leading thinkers in the field.

Degree Flexibility

Our degrees are designed to help you switch the focus of your studies as your interests develop. We understand that committing yourself to a particular degree when you haven't studied it before is a big decision, so your first year, known as Part I, doesn't count towards your final degree. At the end of this year, you will have experienced different subjects which will help you to make a clearer decision about what you want to study for the rest of your degree, known as Part II.

Placements in Industry

On most of our degrees, you have the option of doing a placement year. For some, the placement is an integral part of the degree, but on most of our other degrees you can also take an optional placement year. If you’re able to take that extra year, you’re likely to find it very beneficial. The experience will give your employment prospects a huge boost – you will not find it hard to secure interviews for graduate jobs.
