Industrial-organizational (I-O) psychology is the scientific study of the workplace. The Industrial/Organizational Specialization in Psychology evolves from the I/O Track, a certification program available to Psychology majors since 1991. In recent years our Industrial/Organizational psychology program has gained increasing interest and we continue to graduate more and more students in this specialization each year. Approximately, 78% of specialization participants enter the workforce immediately upon graduating. Those not working the first year out reported attending graduate school full-time, with many others attending part-time for a total 44% of track alumnae attending graduate school. After graduation, track participants continue to excel in both employment and personal achievements.
The I/O Specialization has grown tremendously since our first graduate in May 1992. We have added to our faculty with the arrival of Dr. Jason Dahling in September 2007, and in the fall of 2008 we welcomed Dr. John Ruscio. An article on the specialization’s effectiveness appeared in Teaching of Psychology (2000). However, our greatest strength continues to lie in the students, current and graduate, through whose efforts a curriculum has evolved into a community.
Affiliated faculty include Dr. Jason Dahling, Dr. John Ruscio, and Dr. Jean Kirnan.
