Welcome to the Division of work and organizational psychology
The Division of Work and Organizational Psychology conducts research and organizes undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral studies in the area of work and organizational psychology.
Our research focuses on the contexts of working individuals: in groups, in the organization, and in relation to different constellations and roles in society. The balance and interplay between paid work and the rest of life has an important place in our research as well as stress and health, personal and occupational development, and the individual’s position in the labor market. Among the work environmental factors, special attention is given to organizational and technical changes, new organization and employment types, new reward systems, and work flexibility.
As educators a great deal of effort goes into our Study program focusing on personnel, work, and the organization (180 credits), as well as its advanced-level continuation, Master’s program focusing on personnel, work, and the organization (120 credits). We are also involved in teaching the psychologist program, independent courses, and doctoral studies within the areas of work and organizational psychology as well as methods and statistics. Furthermore, we provide thesis advising for independent courses, the psychologist program, and the master’s program, and have many active doctoral students.
