Within our M.A. in Experimental Psychology program, students who are interested in applying psychology in business settings may choose an Industrial/Organizational psychology specialization. The courses in this specialized sequence prepare students for jobs in industry or more extensive study in a Ph.D. program. Graduates with this background are prepared for jobs that require the following skills:

training

psychometrics

job analysis

personnel selection

interviewing

performance appraisal

empirical research

statistical analysis

technical writing

The projected job growth in these areas, nationally, is higher than average.

We welcome both full-time and part-time students. Two of our courses are available through Distance Learning: PY 502 and PY 503. Students will have opportunities to work in faculty research labs in our small, personalized department.

Prerequisites for the M.A. program are a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, including coursework in experimental design and statistics. Prospective students who do not yet have these pre-requisites can take the necessary pre-requisites in our undergraduate curriculum prior to applying to the graduate program; students should contact the Chair of the Psychology Department to discuss this possibility.
