Why Study I-O at Roosevelt University?
We know you have many choices both nationally and within the Chicagoland area when selecting an I-O graduate program. We also know we don’t have a flashy website to persuade you that our program is your best option. We're okay with that. In fact, we like our website just the way it is. Our I-O M.A. Program is about substance and providing students with outstanding graduate-level training. So our website is like our program – substance over style.
Here are a few reasons why we feel Roosevelt’s I-O M.A. program is world class:
Our M.A. program is constructed according to the industry standard "Scientist-Practitioner Model." This means that students are trained in research methodology and quantitative approaches to organizational issues. Students are also trained to apply that knowledge in the workplace.
This approach prepares students for a number of options after they finish the program. Program graduates routinely take positions in:
Students must complete the following courses to complete the M.A. Degree:
Program Total: 36 credit hours
Students must complete a capstone to complete the program.
Please meet with a program advisor or I-O faculty early in the program (or before you apply) if you have questions about the capstone options.
