Industrial/Organizational Psychology focuses on deriving principles of individual, group and organizational behavior and applying this knowledge to solving problems at work. Graduates leave equipped with the skills for either applied work in organizations or for further PhD-level studies in I/O psychology.
Our exceptional and well-recognized faculty offer courses in Industrial Psychology, Organizational Psychology, and the latest developments in psychological methods. Our students apply their learning during a paid internship in the field, and through teaching and research assistantships.
