Online Master of Arts in Industrial and Organizational Psychology
The success of any organization depends on people. How they relate to one another. How they communicate with each other. How they collaborate to produce quality products and/or deliver first-class customer service. TUW’s graduate program in Industrial & Organizational Psychology (I/O Psychology) is the application of psychological science to helping people in organizations function more effectively.
As a student in the I/O Psychology program, you will learn how to help organizations understand the link between happy, productive employees and profitability. You will learn how to deal with issues such as low morale, low productivity, ineffective processes, and a lack of teamwork.
Industrial & Organizational Psychology is one of the fastest growing specialty areas in the field of psychology, with an expected 26 percent increase in jobs through the year 2018. The Touro I/O Psychology program is consistent with the values and guidelines of the Societies of Industrial & Organizational Psychology, Human Resource Management, and Consulting Psychology.
