Doctorate in Organizational Psychology
It’s believed that within one hour, we experience 27 different emotions. In an eight-hour work day, that amounts to over 200 feelings. And in a business world where emotions are, too often, disregarded, that’s over 200 lost chances to connect – with just one person.
Until you enter the picture. Armed with the knowledge, expertise, and fortitude allowing you to break down the barriers that separate us and build bridges to connect the diverse perspectives we all bring to the conference table. At Alliant, the California School of Professional Psychology’s Doctorate in Organizational Psychology arms you with the tools you will need to build those bridges
An Organizational Psychology PhD is for the forward thinker. For those who seek to better themselves through bettering others. From practical work in class projects, case studies, simulations, and internships, students in the PhD Organizational Psychology Program gain a deep understanding of industrial and organizational emotional intelligence. Curriculum teaches you the theories, ideas, and methods of approach and measurement. Field work shows you how to put it in play – in your own way.
Because it’s about more than just seeing the human under every work hat. It’s about recognizing that the individual is just as important as the whole. That when the workforce succeeds, the organization flourishes.
Make Your Place
Historically, “knowing your place” meant acceptance of your predetermined position within society. Here, it means discovering where you want to be as an agent of change and to make a lasting impact.
Through elective coursework, professional fieldwork, and your chosen dissertation focus, you will have the opportunity to choose the concentration that speaks to you:
- Consulting Psychology
- Executive Coaching
- Strategic Human Resource Management
The Crossroads of Theory and Practice
Alliant’s doctoral program in organizational psychology includes seminars, research, and professional training which are paired in harmonious balance to do more than inform – they immerse. In class and in the field, we are redefining what it means to be hands-on, right from the very start.
Class projects throughout the PhD degree program encourage active learning. Case studies immerse you in research and analysis. In-class simulations bring the outside world in, allowing you to explore different scenarios, preparing you to make better decisions in the field.
It’s not just about “doing.” It’s also about preparing. Because the more experience you have before graduation, the better equipped you will be to translate your experience into expertise. And your expertise into leadership.
Which is why we help place you in supervised internships in an array of settings, like consulting firms and community organizations. You’ll be able to put your education to the test within organizations to diagnose institutional problems and tactically improve upon existing strategies, processes, and systems.
At Alliant, we believe in an education that extends beyond the classroom walls. Our ultimate goal is to prepare you for a career of impact. Here, that path to success is paved with a mix of theory and practice, and it’s up to you to determine where that path will lead you.
