Industrial and Organizational Psychology   PhD

The doctoral program is designed to prepare students for personnel, managerial, and organizational research; for university teaching; and for consulting relationships with industry. The program emphasizes a scientist/practitioner model in applying and conducting research based on accepted theory, organizational behavior, psychology, management, and statistics. The program is administered by a committee appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School on recommendations from the management department head and the program director.

It is intended that students entering the Industrial/Organizational Psychology program will represent widely different undergraduate and graduate backgrounds including psychology, business administration, engineering, science, and liberal arts. The first-year program provides the opportunity to take courses that will assist the students in attaining a reasonable level of sophistication in areas of deficiency.
