Industrial-Organizational Psychology Concentration

The industrial/organizational psychology concentration focuses on multiple aspects of behavior in organizational settings, including personnel selection, quantitative analysis, teams, leadership, work and family issues, and organizational health issues. Mason’s graduate work in this area emphasizes research as the key to knowledge in both academic and applied settings. The program fosters a peer-oriented environment whereby students collaborate on numerous projects in addition to working with faculty members, in many different areas of industrial/organizational psychology.

UN Global Compact

In 2016, the IO program joined the signatories of the United Nations Global Compact. The program supports the Global Compact by advancing its ten principles for human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption. We are proud that this program integrates these principles in curriculum, research, and professional projects that directly relate to the Global Compact.
