Industrial and Organizational Psychology (M.A.)
This program is designed for students interested in pursuing advanced training in applied workplace psychology. This includes:
- job analysis and the development and validation of personnel selection and performance appraisal systems,
- the implementation and evaluation of employee and management training and development programs,
- enhancing employee motivation and morale, and
- 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 program leading to doctoral degree candidacy.
Admission to this program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. Students may enter the program in either the fall or spring/summer semester. The application deadline for the fall semester is June 1 and for the spring/summer semester, March 1. To be considered for admission, an applicant’s background should include a minimum undergraduate upper division cumulative grade point average of 3.00, a course in introductory psychology, and a course in statistics (grade of ‘B’ or better), and he or she should present their scores from the general portion of the GRE test taken within five years of application.
