This program is accredited with the Australian Psychology Accreditation Council (APAC).

Attendance information

The Doctor of Philosophy in Organisational Psychology is offered full-time or part-time at the Mt Gravatt campus. You may choose to study courses at other campuses if or where the program structure allows. You will be classed as a part-time student if you are enrolled in less than 30 credit points per trimester.

Students enrolling in the Doctor of Philosophy in Organisational Psychology are required to complete coursework, supervised placements and a dissertation.

Coursework: You are required to attend approximately 3-6 hours of scheduled classes per week.

Placements: 1000 hours of supervised work experience (conducted off-campus) is a component of this program.

Dissertation: During your enrolment in the dissertation component of this program, it is expected that you will be able to work independently for most of the time. The requirement for on-campus attendance is relatively flexible and unstructured. However, you will be required to meet regularly with your supervisor and it is recommended that you discuss the on-campus attendance requirements with your supervisor at the start of the dissertation.

Work-integrated learning

Work-integrated learning activities (professional placements) integrate theoretical learning with its application in the workplace. The inclusion of work-integrated learning activities in the degree program demonstrates Griffith's commitment to preparing its graduates for success in their working life.

In this program you will spend time in the work/professional environment undertaking placements at various locations. Placements may be outside of the Brisbane metropolitan/Gold Coast area including northern New South Wales and (by negotiation) interstate or overseas.

My career opportunities

You will be prepared for a research career in academia or in other organisations. You will also be able to further your career in public, private, and community sector organisations in consultancy roles.
