Industrial / Organizational Psychology
Purdue’s Industrial and Organizational (I/O) psychology program is among the oldest in the world, conferring its first degree in 1939. The program has graduated more PhDs, and produced more SIOP Fellows, than any other I/O program, and is among the top ranked programs in the nation. For over 50 years, the Industrial and Organizational (I/O) psychology program at Purdue University has enjoyed an excellent reputation. 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 among the top 5 in the nation. In a recent ranking of research productivity of I/O programs based on the top 10 I/O journals in The Industrial-Organizational Psychologist, Purdue was again ranked among the top 5 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. The current faculty have a wide range of research interests, many of which center around the psychological experiences of people at work.
