About this program

MCom (Industrial Psychology) (Coursework)

The MCom (Industrial Psychology) is a master’s Program accredited by the Professional Board of Psychology of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The Program entails seven modules of coursework presented over at least four block weeks during the first year of study and a mini-dissertation. For registration as an industrial psychologist students need to complete an internship.

Admission requirements

The pass mark for both a dissertation and a mini-dissertation is 50%. The provisions regarding pass requirements for dissertations, contained in G39, apply mutatis mutandis to mini-dissertations. A pass mark of at least 50% is required in the examination of each module.

The research component of the degree contributes 50% toward the total requirements for the degree. The research component is represented by the Research in Practice module and the mini-dissertation. The degree Program requires that a mini-dissertation/research article must be submitted in a field of study chosen from the fields covered for the honours degree, provided that the Dean may, on the recommendation of the relevant head of department, approve the replacement of the required dissertation by the successful completion of a prescribed number of module credits and a mini-dissertation/research article. Information on modules, credits and syllabi is available, on request, from the relevant head of department.

A module in Research Methodology is compulsory in all Programs. The Dean may, on the recommendation of the relevant head of department, waive the prerequisites. In this case, the Research in Practice (IPS 806) will replace the Research Methodology module.
