Purdue’s Industrial and Organizational (I-O) psychology major is among the oldest in the world, conferring its first degree in 1939. The program has graduated more PhDs and produced more SIOP Fellows than any other I-O program, and it is among the top-ranked programs in the nation (Gourman report, TIP report, 2022 U.S. News & World Report). Graduate training in our program is based on a science-practice model, where students are trained both as researchers as well as applied scientists equipped to work with organizations on human resource issues. The current faculty have a wide range of research interests, many of which center around the psychological experiences of people at work.
