Undergraduate programmes in Management and Organisation
The Department of Organisation, Work & Technology offers major schemes in Management and Organisation and Management and Organisation with HRM. These two schemes are also available in variants that include a year of work experience or a year of studying in the USA or Australasia on our Study Abroad option. In addition, there are joint major degrees (combined degrees) with Psychology, Sociology and American Studies. Students from other departments may also take some of our courses as minor courses.
The staff of the Department are active writers and researchers working within a wide spectrum of organisational settings, which helps to ensure that the courses are up-to-date and relevant to the needs of students. The Department enjoys a worldwide reputation for the quality of its work. The Department, as part of the Management School, received top ratings for its research and a rating of Excellent (the highest possible) for its teaching in the most recent assessments.
At Lancaster University we have always had flexible degree schemes that enable students to follow their main interests and to combine these with other subjects that they discover whilst at university. Thus, all first degree students register for a major subject and may also take a minor course that interests them – subject to the university timetable. It is also possible to change major subject at the end of the first year if you are qualified so to do.
