Work and Organisational Psychology

Which working conditions help prevent mental fatigue? What determines the effectiveness of a team? And how do you stimulate innovation? These are the types of questions you'll be asking if you specialise in Work and Organisational Psychology. The programme covers topics such as human resources, human organisation and work psychology. You’ll also attend a series of workshops that specifically focus on practical skills, such as applying job analyses and measuring human performance.

But you could also pursue an academic career, studying the psychology of work and organisations.

      Who better to festively welcome new FPN students, than current FPN students?

      On 27 August we will welcome all the new students to our faculty. Do you have a passion for music, and do you want to share it with your fellow students? Send us a video of your musical talent, via any channel you’d like, and maybe you’ll be on the main stage in August.

      Your video can be shot with a smartphone, digital camera, or be delivered on VHS. We will take any entry into consideration and we look forward to the great music we will be reviewing.

      E-mail your entry to contact-fpn[at]maastrichtuniversity[dot]nl before 1 April 2018! If you’ve been selected we’ll contact you before the end of April to give you more information (time, location, payment, etc.)
