Master of Science in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology

The Master of Science in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology is a two-year, full-time program, which includes 58 credits in academic courses, four practice modules, and one APA-style writing seminar.

This program seeks to develop professionals in the field by teaching and integrating theory and practice in discipline-specific contexts. It also aims to contribute to the strengthening of human performance and quality of life in organizational contexts, as well as help solve problems commonly faced by people and organizations.

I/O psychology professionals concern themselves with human behavior in relation to the workplace by applying psychological principles to improve employee performance and the organization’s work environment.

This program offers students practical experience in real-world scenarios. It focuses on staff psychology, group interaction and decision making, organizational behavior, psychological evaluation techniques within the organization, diagnoses, change and organizational development, training, psychosocial aspects of health in organizations, and positive occupational health psychology, among other areas.

The United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects that the employment rate for all psychologists will rise by 14% between 2018 and 2028. For professionals in industrial/organizational psychology, this demand will keep increasing because companies need to strengthen employee productivity and improve retention rates, as well as address issues of diversity and prevent labor discrimination.

Professionals in industrial/organizational psychology can serve as administrators, executives, consultants, academics, and researchers.

According to the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES), a program of the BLS, the salary for I/O psychologists ranges from $39,000 to $69,000. This salary is dependent on the psychologist’s degree of experience and type of employer.
