Graduate Degree Programs

The objective of graduate work in psychology is to educate the student in the methods and basic content of the discipline and to provide an apprenticeship in the execution of creative research.  

Master of Science in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology

Our Industrial and Organizational (I/O) Psychology master’s program is intended for students who want to pursue careers as I/O professionals. It focuses on developing applied skills, offering professional training to those not wishing to pursue doctoral studies. I/O professionals work in a number of different areas that are crucial to the success of modern businesses and industries. The ability of I/O professionals to meet these needs grows from the training that enables them to apply psychological principles and research methods in the workplace. Our program provides a non-thesis degree option as well as the option of completing a master's thesis. All students automatically enter the program under the non-thesis option and may change to the thesis option if they choose.
