Org Psych MA

Master of Arts in Organizational Psychology (MA) Blended Program

Curriculum

The MA program is an intensive 10-month, 30-credit degree program designed for working professionals who desire to expand, deepen, and sharpen their skills in leading and sustaining changes in organizations. The blended program begins with several weeks of reading, online lectures, and assignments followed by an intensive weekend-in-residence (WIR). The WIRs are held from 8:00 am - 5:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday following the online portion of each course. The blended program begins August of each year.

The cohort model is central to our educational approach. As a cohort, you will be in a class of people who will take the same courses in the same sequence as you throughout the duration of the program. We place a great deal of value on peer learning, and expect our cohorts to include students who have practiced some of the subject matter in their professional lives. Finally, “Experiential Learning” will be employed over more traditional methods of education.


2012-2013 Class Schedule for the Blended Program:

Note: the weekends-in-residence (WIR) are always held from 8:00 am - 5:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, unless otherwise noted.
