Course Description
Psy 462-Industrial/Organizational Psychology is a survey of the ways that psychological theory and research have been applied to understand and enhance the effectiveness of people at work. Much of the research, and many of the examples to which you will be exposed deal with private sector (business) organizations. However, the principles of I/O Psychology can be applied to any organization. I/O Psychologists draw from many areas of psychology (e.g., Psychometrics, Social Psychology, Personality Psychology) and add to these areas in their work on organizational effectiveness. In Psy 462 we will learn about people at work, organizational effectiveness, and we will explore some basic psychological principles.

Information regarding Course Requirements, Grading, and the Course Schedule is available on the course Moodle site.
