The aim of the 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 an internship will enable them to register as psychometrics with the Professional Board for Psychology of the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).

Admission requirements

A potential student should be in possession of an acceptable Baccalaureus Degree qualification on NQF level 6 with Industrial Psychology as a major subject (i.e. Industrial Psychology 1, 2 and 3), or the equivalent thereof. An average of 65% will allow a potential student to apply for the Honours course. Exposure to a formal research module at the 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.
