Our program requires students to complete at least two practice-based courses: Group Dynamics, a course that incorporates theory and practice and at least one of the following practica: Practicum in Change and Consultation, Practicum in Conflict Resolution, and/or an Organizational Internship. We offer a variety of additional applied courses, including:
Students can also enroll in coursework outside of the Social-Organizational Psychology program to build their applied skills by taking electives in other programs, including Counseling Psychology, Clinical Psychology, Developmental Psychology, Measurement & Evaluation, and others.
Moreover, the faculty are actively engaged in current issues that organizations face. Many are organizational consultants, coaches, and advisors. Not surprisingly, our courses integrate theory and practice as well as relevant models and frameworks to analyze and implement changes to real world problems.
