The design of the graduate program in I/O Psychology is predicated on the value of the scientist-practitioner model as the basis for educating I/O psychologists. Students are trained primarily as research scientists and secondarily as applied practitioners of the discipline. As such, our program is characterized by a heavy emphasis on the development of research and measurement skills that can be used to address the problems of business, government and industry. Research activity is an integral part of the educational experience and is expected of all students for every semester that they are in residence at the University; this is carried out in close collaboration with faculty in the program.
