Department of Psychological Sciences
I-O Psychology, Ph.D.

Program Overview: The Industrial and Organizational (I-O) Psychology doctoral program provides doctoral students with a well-rounded foundation in Industrial Psychology, Organizational Psychology, and quantitative coursework. 

Students enrolled in our doctoral program will be trained in scientific methods applied to the industrial and organizational environment. Graduates of the program will be prepared to work in academic, research, and/or applied settings. 

Our doctoral program is a research-based program where students work with one or more faculty members. Students are required to complete a research-based thesis and a general doctoral exam before advancing to doctoral candidacy. The last milestone is a doctoral dissertation. 

Students who wish to complete only a master's degree should apply for our Master of Science in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (non-thesis) program.
