Industrial / Organizational Psychology

For over 50 years, the Industrial and Organizational (I/O) psychology program at Purdue University has enjoyed an excellent reputation. More I/O psychologists have been trained here than at any other university in the world. When I/O psychologists have been surveyed about the quality of graduate programs, Purdue has always ranked among the top programs. In a recent Gourman report rating graduate schools in I/O Psychology, Purdue was ranked number five in the nation. The graduate program in industrial-organizational psychology is primarily a Ph.D. program. Training in this program is research-oriented. Students are strongly encouraged to participate in faculty research and eventually to formulate and direct their own individual research projects. Teaching experience is also provided for most students during their graduate program. Most students enter the Ph.D. program with the bachelor's degree. Graduate students are admitted to work with one of the primary I/O faculty members who serves as their major professor.

This year only, Dr. Su will be recruiting departmentally-funded graduate students who will begin their studies in the fall of 2015. In addition, students with independent funding are welcome to apply.
