MA Industrial and Organizational Psychology
|Psychology » MA Industrial and Organizational Psychology|
This program is designed for students interested in pursuing advanced training in applied workplace psychology. This includes (a) job analysis and the development and validation of personnel selection and performance appraisal systems, (b) the implementation and evaluation of employee and management training and development programs, (c) enhancing employee motivation and morale, and (d) related activities that employ psychological principles and practices to increase organizational effectiveness.
Unlike the Master of Arts with a Major in Psychology, this program is NOT a transitional stage leading to doctoral degree candidacy.
The program is designed as a part-time, 2-year program. The typical course load is 2 courses (6 cr.) in the fall and winter semesters, and 1 course (3 cr.) in the summer semesters. All classes meet in the late afternoon or early evening.
International students, and domestic students wishing to be full-time (8 cr. fall and winter), will need to register for elective course in addition to the 30 credits required. Elective courses from outside the psychology department, ie. business, economics, communications, etc.; may require departmental and/or instructor permission to register.
Admission to this program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. Students may enter this program in the fall or spring/summer semester. Application deadlines are as follows:
The Master of Arts in Industrial/Organizational Psychology is offered only with a Plan C option: 30 credits of coursework with no thesis or essay.
