What is industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology? It is the scientific study of psychology and human behavior in the workplace. It applies psychological theories and principles to organizations and the individuals that work in them. I/O psychology teaches you the human relations skills that can be used in a variety of industries and roles. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it is one of the fastest growing occupations. 

At Springfield College, we offer an I/O psychology graduate concentration that blends coursework from numerous fields, including organizational psychology, counseling psychology, and human resource management. These fields are then combined with the science of psychology, so you’ll learn how to develop solutions for a wide array of human and organizational problems, ranging from employee selection to team building and organizational development. Upon graduation, you’ll have a strong understanding of professional communication, human relations, behavioral sciences research, and industrial/organization knowledge, skills, and abilities.
