Helping pay for your degree.

  • To help you learn while putting your skills into practice, and to offset the cost of your education, competitive, merit-based graduate research assistantships provide full tuition and a stipend. Learn more.
  • The Schaefer Center for Public Policy offers selective fellowships for full-time students to work on the center's applied research projects. In addition, there are opportunities for students to work as student assistants or as research assistants on various center projects. Deadlines are April 15 (for the fall semester) and Oct. 15 (for the spring semester).

Lead by example. Help others lead, hire, train and motivate.

Did you know that industrial/organizational psychology is the fastest growing occupation in the United States? Graduates of I/O Psychology with a Master's degree can earn a median salary of over $83,500.

The Industrial/Organizational Psychology Track of our M.S. in Applied Psychology program focuses on preparing you to facilitate effective leadership within organizations and to help those same organizations hire, train, and motivate employees.

You'll be learning (and, even better, doing) in a program that's been training successful I/O practitioners for more than 30 years.


Classes meet evenings Monday-Thursday, 5:30-8 p.m. and 8:15-10:45 p.m. and sometimes during the day for full-time students. Some courses are offered during the summer.

To make your education as convenient as possible for you, we also offer some classes in a hybrid format that meet partially in class and partially online. Most classes utilize Sakai, our online learning management system.
