PUTTING THEORY TO THE REAL-WORLD TEST
A distinguishing feature of CSPP’s Organizational Psychology doctoral and master’s degree programs is the integration of courses, seminars, research and professional training with field experience.
HANDS-ON TRAINING SIDE-BY-SIDE WITH EXPERTS
All students gain practical experience through supervised field placements or internships in real-world settings such as corporations, government agencies, non-profit organizations and consulting firms.
Field placements and/or internships provide students with hands-on training in:
- Organizational systems
- The diagnosis of organizational problems
- The design, implementation and evaluation of intervention strategies.
FULL-TIME OR PART-TIME INTERNSHIPS
While many doctoral students participate in two years of half-time (15-22 hours per week) placements, in some programs students obtain one-year full-time or half-time internships that take place throughout the United States or sometimes abroad.
