Doctoral Program in Organizational Psychology


Rutgers University - Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology (GSAPP)

The Consortium for Reseach on Emotional Intelligence in Organizations is headquartered within Rutgers, providing students the opportunity to conduct research and collaborate with leading experts in the field of emotional intelligence.

Mission: The purpose of the organizational psychology program is to provide students with the finest possible graduate education for the practice of organizational psychology, and for the possibility of becoming license-eligible in New Jersey and other states for the practice of psychology.

What we do? The practice of organizational psychology consists of intervening with organizations to achieve one or more of the following objectives: (1) raise performance, (2) improve processes and relationships, (3) enhance fairness and equity, and (4) increase subjective well-being. Organizational psychologists work within the context of organizations, although interventions may focus on individuals, pairs of individuals, groups, combinations of groups, or whole organizations. Methods of intervention derive from explicit psychological concepts and theories appropriate to the objectives and entities engaged in change processes. When fully utilized, the practice of organizational psychology begins with assessment or diagnosis, proceeds to design and implementation, and concludes with evaluation of the efforts to bring about change. Organizational psychology is practiced with service- delivering and product-generating organizations from the public, private, and not-for-profit sectors of society.

What do we study? The curriculum provides training in general graduate applied psychology, core organizational psychology, and then advanced and experiential organizational psychology. Applicants with a master's degree in psychology, or related field, may be eligible to waive the 12 credit pre-requisites. Any interested applicant can apply and register for the first three core organizational psychology courses, and upon successful completion of those courses can be matriculated into the PsyD in organizational psychology degree program.
