The I-O Ph.D. program is now accepting applications for the Fall 2015 semester. Review of applications will begin February 1st, 2015.
The Department of Psychology's Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Industrial/Organizational Psychology is based on the scientist-practitioner model of professional training and stresses the importance of apprenticeship, emphasizing working closely with faculty on research and applied projects outside of the classroom. The program is relatively new and enrolled its first class in the Fall 2012 term.
Generally, M.A. and Ph.D degrees in I-O psychology have different foci. An M.A. degree is an applied degree that prepares students for application of I-O psychology by focusing on practical skills. However, the Ph.D is a research degree that prepares students to conduct scientific research and analyze data with a higher degree of sophistication.
We recently welcomed our inaugural cohort of Ph.D. students to campus. We are happy to be joined by Alexis Cosco, Sarah Jones, Marlaina Montoya, Long Ngyuen, and Ben Sher. Pictured below are (left to right) Ed Wygonik, Michelle Parker, Brian Siers, Mike Helford, Long Ngyuen, Guy Di Spigno, Jackie Deuling, Adrian Thomas, Alexis Cosco, Joe Mazzola, Sarah Jones, and Ben Sher.

Additionally, we would like to welcome our newest faculty member, Toshio Murase, to the program. Toshio received his Ph.D. in I/O psychology from University of Central Florida and conduct research on investigating teams and leadership using social network methods.
