Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology
Doctor of Philosophy in Industrial / Organizational Psychology
Florida Tech's doctoral degree in industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology provides training and research opportunities in the complex issues associated with the management of human resources in the domestic and international communities. The I/O program is based on the scientist-practitioner model and offers a wide range of I/O content courses, as well as varied research and applied opportunities. Rigorous coursework is coupled with applied projects and advanced training in research design and analysis. Students are encouraged to work closely with their faculty advisor to conduct research that can be presented at professional conferences or submitted to academic journals. The small class size of the Ph.D. program facilitates close interaction and augments the mentoring process. A concentration in international I/O psychology is also offered. Students pursuing the concentration take classes in cross-cultural psychology and international business, and are encouraged to conduct research or take classes with the program's international partners. The I/O psychology program provides training for careers in academics, professional research organizations, and both internal and external consulting. The I/O program is affiliated with the Florida Tech Center for Organizational Effectiveness and Institute for Cross-Cultural Management.
