In today’s exceedingly complex global environment, practitioners need superior knowledge and skills that enable them to perform effectively in a wide variety of organizational contexts and roles. Our 45 credit M.A. program provides students the ability to think critically about the real issues facing people and organizations and to develop and implement solutions to the most pressing problems in organizational life and in society.

At the center of our core values is the scientist-practitioner model. Our graduates apply the latest theory and research to solve ‌problems quickly and effectively, and our academics ground their work in the real-world issues faced by organizations. Our program is committed to the cause of social justice and aims to educate scholar-practitioners who apply their expertise in service of the greater good. Further, a majority of program faculty conduct research and engage in practice in the areas of multiculturalism, diversity, social identity, and justice.

A diverse range of teaching and learning methodologies inform the MA student experience, including didactic input from experts in the field, applied research combined with experiential learning, and hands-on practical experience working with real clients. Scientific rigor is emphasized whereby ‌students learn how to assess and conduct research relevant to today’s organizations alongside a focus on the importance of being a reflective practitioner and continuously increasing self- and other- awareness.
