PSY380.4 Industrial and Organizational Psychology

Unless you had the great fortune of being born independently wealthy, you will spend at least some portion of your adult life (a large portion for most of us) working in a formal organization. Work, organizations, and the psychological phenomena surrounding them are areas that many of us are both familiar with and interested in. The goal of this course is to become familiar with Industrial/Organizational Psychology (I/O Psychology). Most definitions of I/O Psychology will represent this subarea of psychology as an applied science. An applied science takes the principles of human behavior identified by basic research and applies them to specific “real-life” situations. In the case of I/O Psychology the “real-life” situation is the workplace. (PSY 4003)
