Organizational Psychology Degree And Programs



Organizational psychologists apply the principles of psychology to the workplace, with the aim of improving both worker performance and the office environment. As an organizational psychologist, you can choose a research-based career or work hands-on with specific organizations. You may be called upon to assist in hiring new personnel or you could be hired as a consultant to address a specific management or organizational problem. In fact, many organizational psychologists choose not to work with a single company but rather act as an advisor or consultant to a constellation of organizations.




Your Career in Organizational Psychology

If you think you might be suited to a career in organizational psychology, a bachelor's degree in psychology is the minimum education requirement. However, you cannot work independently until you have at least a master's in organizational psychology, and in many cases it is advisable to earn a doctoral degree as well. Sometimes specific career training can be substituted for education. In addition, the American Board of Professional Psychology offers an advanced certification in the field.
