IOHRM logo: The People Side of Business, The Business Side of Psychology

The Industrial-Organizational Psychology and Human Resource Management Program is an Interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree, offered by the Departments of Psychology and Management, to prepare professionals for work in business, industry, and government. As part of the only cross-disciplinary master's degree program in the nation, students have the unique opportunity to leverage the application of I-O Psychology to business.

Designed to equip students with specialized training in human resource management, program emphasis is placed on developing knowledge of theories, methods, and research findings derived from the behavioral sciences. The program also emphasizes the acquisition of skills in the application of this knowledge to such organizational activities as selection, placement, and motivation of employees; training and development; performance appraisal; and development and change of organizations.
