The MA program in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology follows the scientist/practitioner model. This means that students are trained in research methodology and quantitative approaches to address organizational issues. Further, students are trained to apply this knowledge and scientific approach to problems in the real world of work.
The program admits new students each fall and spring semester on both a full and part-time basis. We admit both students coming directly from undergraduate programs and mid-career students returning to the university after extensive work experience.
These are the requirements:
Roosevelt considers each applicant on an individual basis and seeks diversity in ethnic and cultural background, education and life experience, and sexual orientation.
Students must complete the following courses to complete the M.A. degree:
Students must complete one of the three capstone options to complete the program.
Students must be formally advised into a capstone option by an I/O faculty member. Students should meet with a program adviser or I/O faculty member early in the program with any questions about the capstone options or eligibility for the different options.
Students who do not complete a thesis or other internship within the semester they registered for thesis or internship credit hours (690 or 699; 3 credit hours) must maintain continued registration until completion of the project. A student must register for the appropriate zero-credit course (690Y or 699Y) EACH fall and spring semester until the project is completed. Students who have not maintained continuous registration for thesis or other final project will be required to register for all intervening fall and spring semesters prior to graduation.
