The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD-Psy) program was designed in response to the growing interest in psychology as a discipline of study and the need for advanced studies, including research beyond the master's level. This degree program emphasizes theory, research, and scholarship, culminating in a dissertation.
Northcentral University offers a robust Doctor of Philosophy in Psychology program in Industrial Organizational Psychology (IOP). You’ll work with expert faculty who will provide One-to-One feedback and support as you learn to apply psychological theories to critical issues in the fields of business and industry. As you work through the courses, you will become adept at small group theory and team processes, dynamics of leadership and management, and the structure and procedures of organizational development. The application of tests and measurements, and the interpretation of their results as applied to employee selection, performance appraisals, and training evaluations are additional skills that you can expect to learn in this specialization.
The IOP specialization in the PhD in Psychology program at Northcentral will prepare you to assume leadership positions in industry, government, consulting and education in various fields, such as research, coaching, human resource development, consumer behavior analysis, workplace planning, market strategy, personnel specialist, and talent acquisition.
