Program description

At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We proudly rank 1st for student satisfaction in the National Student Survey for the last three years. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Human Resource Management and Psychology. The Human Resource Management and Psychology course offers a superb critical insight into the multi-faceted
relationship between the worker and the organisation by building a
detailed understanding of the reasons why humans feel, think and act
in the ways they do. Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Personnel
Development (CIPD) for the Human Resource Management element and
the British Psychological Society for its psychology modules, this course
is an excellent intellectual platform for a number of people-focused
careers in management.

In the Human Resource Management modules, you will learn about
formal and informal ways of regulating the employment relationship
in the public, private and voluntary sectors, including legislation and
industrial relations. You’ll explore how organisations function as part
of their wider economic and political context, how they are managed
and how they plan their future needs.

In the Psychology modules, you will
find out what the latest research tells us about human behaviour in a
biological and cognitive framework. In our well-equipped laboratories,
you will learn how to design and conduct your own psychological studies
using a range of quantitative and qualitative techniques. The emphasis
is on understanding how psychology impacts on everyday life; from
developing a sense of self and negotiating personal relationships to
influencing judgements about matters of global significance.

Accredited by both the British Psychological Society and the CIPD, this
course can be a stepping stone to further develop into either of these
spheres or give you the grounding for a wide range of careers relating
to them. You may choose a career in training and development, equality
and diversity or recruitment, or as a clinical counsellor, occupational
therapist or sports psychologist.
