Program Overview

The Graduate Certificate in Industrial-Organizational Psychology is designed for students who wish to develop foundational knowledge and skills in the rapidly evolving field of industrial-organizational psychology. With only two core requirements, students work in concert with the department chair to develop a course of study that is uniquely tailored to their professional interests.

While offering less breadth than the Master of Arts in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, the certificate is ideally combined with the Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology for those students who seek to apply their skills to the workplace.

Admission Requirements

  • Applicants should hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited US institution or the equivalent from a recognized foreign (outside the US) institution, and provide official transcripts.
