In the fall of 2018, the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences launched a new Master’s program in Industrial-Organizational Psychology (MSIOP). I-O psychology is the scientific study of human behavior at work and the application of that science to workplace challenges facing individuals, teams, and organizations. The department has maintained a strong PhD program in I-O psychology for over 20 years and saw a need and opportunity to prepare students at the master’s level for applied positions in industry and consulting, as well. The 33-credit hour, non-thesis, 16-month cohort-based program offers a balanced scientist-practitioner curriculum with a required industry-based summer internship.

The first cohort will be graduating in December of 2019 and seek full-time employment. The second cohort of students (pictured above) started the program in the fall of 2019. The department recently hired Yumiko Mochinushi as an Instructional Assistant Professor to support the program.

Applications for fall 2020 admission to the program are due February 15th. Details about the program can be found here
