Industrial and Organizational Psychology Minor
Saint Joseph’s University's minor in industrial and organizational psychology is a collaboration between the departments of psychology and management.
Industrial and organizational psychology is the scientific study of human behavior in organizations and workplaces. The focus of the minor is both individual and group performance, satisfaction, safety, health and well-being. This is understood through the lens of a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods. By studying worker attitudes and behaviors, you are able to recommend or create improved hiring practices, training programs, feedback systems and management techniques to boost company performance. As a graduate, your knowledge and skills are relevant to almost any organization, including corporations, factories, nonprofits, government agencies and the military.
