Purpose

The purpose of this qualification is to develop the applied competence of the student in analysing, interpreting and understanding industrial psychology principles and methods. It further develops the intellectual, research and professional skills of the student. The qualification prepares students to meaningfully contribute to organisations’ human resource acquisition, utilisation and development interventions. An industrial psychology honours graduate will be able to apply for post-honours training and internship programmes in psychometrics. Completion of such training and an internship will enable them to register as psychometrists with the Professional Board for Psychology of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA). The qualification also prepares students for further study in Industrial Psychology.


Admission Requirements

A potential student should be in possession of an acceptable Baccalaureus degree qualification on NQF level 7 with Industrial Psychology as a major module (i.e. Industrial Psychology1, 2 and 3), or the equivalent thereof. An average of 70% for all Industrial Psychology modules will allow a potential student to apply for the honours programme. Applicants will undergo an assessment as part of the selection process.

The top ranked applicants will be selected to register for the BComHons (Industrial Psychology) degree in accordance to the University’s Enrolment Plan. Exposure to a formal research module at undergraduate level is essential. Exposure to a formal module(s) in Human Resource Management and/or Psychology and/or Business Management will be a recommendation.

 


Selection Process

Since only a limited number of students can be accommodated annually, applicants will be subjected to a selection process. The Dean of the College of Business and Economics may refuse a student admission to the honours qualification if he/she is of the opinion that the student’s academic background is inadequate.
