Excel in human resources with a master's in organizational psychology.

As a manager or human resources specialist, one of the most valuable skills you can have is a strong understanding of how people think and behave. When you understand how people function as part of an organization, you’re able to use that information to help individual employees find satisfaction on the job and help the organization succeed as a whole.

Our Master of Science in industrial/organizational psychology program helps you learn how principles of psychology can be utilized for organizational success. This program does not prepare you for licensure as a professional psychologist. Instead, you’ll learn how to leverage psychological theories, methods, and principles to help individual workers, teams, and entire organizations.

As a student, you’ll have the chance to learn from working professionals who bring a real-world perspective to the classroom. You won’t just be listening to lectures or reading out of a textbook, you’ll be learning how to apply these principles in practical situations.

After earning your Master of Science in industrial/organizational psychology, you’ll be fully prepared to enter advance in many different areas of business, including human resources, organizational development, and employee training.

I chose Baker for the curriculum. They look at what you’re going to need and a lot of MBAs are general. The curriculum at Baker I felt that a lot of the things that I was doing in school I could directly translate into what I was doing in the hospital.
