PROGRAM OVERVIEW:

M.A. IN INDUSTRIAL/ORGANIZATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY

The master of arts degree in industrial/organizational psychology provides a theoretical foundation for addressing a broad range of behavioral issues in the workplace. It develops professionals within human resources, organizational development, and training fields, and provides organizational leaders with a graduate education that relates directly to their practice as leaders.

The M.A. is a 65-credit program (56 credits required plus 9 elective credits) and is designed to be taken over a two-year/seven-quarter or three-year/eleven-quarter sequence. Master's students may take any approved graduate courses to fulfill their elective requirements. A full-time student will typically take 8 credits a quarter (two classes) in his or her first year and 8-11 credits in the second year. Students complete a master's project in their final year of the program.
