Organizational Psychology Courses
The curriculum for the Certificate in Organizational Psychology is under review. At this time, we are not accepting applications to the program. Please continue to check our website for more information about updated curriculum and admissions requirements.
The Certificate in Organizational Psychology is designed for students who want to learn more about the interaction of individuals and groups in organizational settings, and how to apply these principles to achieve the goals of their unit and organization. In this program, students increase their knowledge of psychological research, theories and applications in the areas of individual differences, interpersonal and group interactions, behavior development and change, consumer behavior, and the dynamics of human interactions in organizations.
In accord with individual needs, students have elective options to obtain additional knowledge in organizational foundations, theory and practice; organizational development and change; and/or organizational leadership, culture and ethics. All courses are for credit and are transferable once a student is admitted into an undergraduate degree-seeking program. Prerequisite work may be required.
