We are so excited to announce the launch of our MA/MS in Industrial Organizational Psychology. Saint Peter’s University has been nationally recognized for Institutional Transformation (ACE) and for providing upward mobility and affordability. We now want to bring that same approach to graduate education in psychology. As one of the fasting growing fields in the United States (according to the Department of Labor), A Master’s in Industrial Organizational (I/O) psychology provides students a chance to further their knowledge of psychology and increase their marketability in today’s workforce.
Continuing our tradition of a student-centered approach to education, our programs offers students the option between a Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Science (MS), is 100% online, and can be completed in 15 months. Our online format allows for maximum flexibility, allowing students to work around their own needs and schedules.
The program at Saint Peter’s University is designed to prepare students for a wide range of career paths in academic, organizational, and consulting settings. Consistent with the model of I/O psychologists as both scientists and practitioners, our program places a heavy emphasis on developing students’ research and analytical skills as well as the core skills and knowledge of I/O psychology. The program will prepare students for ethical research and ethical leadership.
In our program students will:
learn core psychological competencies in the history of I/O psychology and its integration into the broader discipline,
learn core psychological competencies in the subspecialties of I/O psychology including: personnel selection, group dynamics, ethical application, job analysis, motivation, and cross-cultural issues,
develop analytical and critical thinking skills that will allow them to apply their knowledge to solve organizational problems in a variety of settings,
develop research method and statistical skills that will allow them to apply their knowledge to solve organizational problems in a variety of settings and
build skills to enhance their pursuit of a higher doctoral graduate degree and/or increase their employment opportunities.
I look forward to collaborating with you in exploring the exciting feel of I/O psychology. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
