Master of Science in Organizational Psychology

The organizational psychology program aims to address critical leadership skills required to enhance organizational effectiveness. Today’s leaders and managers need to know how to promote teamwork, manage transitions, and restructure organizations. The program provides students with a theoretical framework in organizational psychology and the opportunity to improve their own skills in research, communication, and facilitation, as well as interpersonal, group, and organizational issues. The integration of theory and practice prepares graduates to lead, manage, and/or consult with dynamic and diverse organizations operating in a global environment.

By taking courses in the Department of Psychology, School of Communication, and Barney School of Business, students develop unique analytical skills and accumulate knowledge from differing perspectives. The variety of electives offered, including courses in education and nursing, also enables students to “tailor” their graduate experience to their individual and professional needs.

The program is designed to meet the needs of various types of students by providing:

  • A strong foundation for students who intend to continue on for further graduate work in any area of psychology
  • Solid training and practicum opportunities for students who wish to obtain a terminal master’s degree and apply their acquired skills in various work settings
  • An opportunity for non-psychologist professionals who wish to become more knowledgeable about the application of psychology to their professional interests.
