The industrial organizational psychology graduate program emphasizes the application of psychological science to enhance the performance and well-being of people in organizations. This program will prepare you to develop assessments of people for selection and placement into jobs, effective training programs, strategies for organizational development, measurement of performance, and ways to promote quality of work-life. Students receive a strong core foundation in industrial and organizational psychology as well as statistics and research methods.
The subject program delivery is tailored for the convenience of a mixed cohort of full-time and part-time students. Many subjects are offered intensively, over a period of one week between February and December, making it practicable for students from outside Melbourne to study part-time. Intensive subjects in the program are designed to enable all students to immerse themselves in the subject matter for a stimulating five days. Other subjects are offered at intervals across a 12-week semester and individual course advice is available from senior academics to assist with subject selection.
Each of these institutions is expert in their respective part of the Global-MINDS educational programme. Graduates will be awarded a joint master degree. A group of world-leading scholars from different countries also contributes to the delivery and quality assurance of the programme. An international network of associate partners – private companies, civil society organisations, public service providers, practitioners, policy makers, governmental organisations and NGOs – assures high quality student internships and assistance in graduates’ employment.
