What Will You Study

Our Management and Organisation degree offers you a wide-ranging programme exploring Management theory alongside Psychology, Sociology, History and Philosophy. You will understand how organisations are structured and function effectively and how their actions affect life in contemporary societies.

On the Management and Organisation (Human Resource Management) course you will focus particularly on understanding people - the way they work and how their behaviour can be influenced through management practices.

The degree programme is available with our Study Abroad options, where you spend the second year of your course at a partner university overseas and the degree can be extended into a four-year course where you undertake an industrial placement during your third year.

You start your degree studying the core module Management and Organisations and take two other Part One courses. We recommend choosing Management School or Social Sciences courses, but the choice is yours.

In your second year, you'll deepen your understanding with modules including Understanding the Individual in the Workplace; Social and Organisational Psychology, and Human Resource Management. The latter module is compulsory on this degree.

If you follow the Study Abroad variant, you'll spend your second year overseas. You'll spend your third year on placement in industry if you choose our four-year variant.

In your final year, you can choose from a range of modules such as Managing Human Resources; Comparative and International HRM, and Management and Organisation: key approaches. The courses on Human Resource Management are compulsory on this degree.
