Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology is the study of how people think, feel and behave at work. More specifically, I-O psychologists are interested in such topics as: recruitment and selection systems, motivation, employee development, teams, performance management and reward systems, fair workplace practices, leadership, and employee well-being. The I-O Psychology field at the University of Guelph was developed based on the graduate training recommendations of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) and the Canadian equivalent (CSIOP). The field is unique in Canada because of our balanced approach to graduate education - we highly value both the research and practice in our field and recognize their interrelated role in the profession.


These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    Prior to applying to the I-O Psychology graduate field you will need to complete an Honours Psychology Degree and write the General GRE (Graduate Records Exam). The GRE Subject test (Psychology GRE) is recommended. Because of the research-intensive nature of our program we are most interested in students with a strong background in research methods and statistics. The I-O Psychology MA and PhD field at Guelph form an integrated graduate degree; consequently, only students interested in completing both the MA and PhD are encouraged to apply.
