2 Master of Arts, Industrial and Organizational Psychology The M.A. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (I/O) curriculum enables Chicago School students to gain the essential diagnostic and consultative skills to help organizations and the individuals within them solve problems, perform effectively, work in a global multicultural environment, and grow professionally. The Chicago School focuses not just on theory and research, but on teaching its students the applied skills necessary to succeed in the business world. The I/O program at The Chicago School is distinctive in that it applies the discipline s assessment skills and feedback mechanisms to the program itself. Students not only learn how to design and implement assessment centers and 360-degree feedback tools, but they also benefit by participating in these very same practices to identify their own strengths and to improve developmental areas. Intensive course work that balances theory and practice is accompanied by two supervised internships. Students must successfully complete 46 credit hours, six of which are electives, to graduate. The Chicago School, in cooperation with Lake Forest Graduate School of Management (LFGSM), also offers its graduates the option of earning an accelerated M.B.A. degree. This program is designed to facilitate additional graduate-level education for actively employed professionals who have received an M.A. in I/O Psychology. Chicago School alumni who enroll at LFGSM through this educational alliance will receive transfer credit for three graduate-level courses toward the completion of an M.B.A. degree. Our students have secured internships and jobs at organizations such as the Chicago Board of Trade, Chicago Tribune, AC Nielsen, Red Cross, Allstate, Rush Health Medical Systems, GM Electromotive Division, Buck Consulting, YMCA, Aon Consulting, United Healthcare, Bank of America, Red Prairie Software, Ernst and Young, GSP Marketing, United Airlines, Watson Dwyer, Synovate, Monar Consulting, HR Advantage, and Carrington LTD Executive Search. The IO program also offers an Executive Career Enhancement and Leadership (ExCEL) track in Applied Industrial/Organizational Psychology. This track offers courses in a format of online courses and one virtual residency consisting of a one hour meeting each term via a Webinar/teleconference. This accelerated track is designed for working adults who desire advanced skills and knowledge in human behavior to improve individual and organizational performance. It is an applied program that incorporates individual work experiences and workplace situations with classroom theory to extend and deepen learning and it builds upon the self-direction of adult learners to strengthen this relationship. Students must complete an applied research project which integrates program learning and applies this learning to an authentic workplace situation. Additional field practica are not required. Students in the ExCEL track will select from a specialization in one of the following areas: Organizational Effectiveness, Workplace Diversity, Consumer Psychology, or Leadership for Healthcare Professionals. For those who do not wish to pursue a Master s degree, The Chicago School also offers a nine credit hour certificate in one of the aforementioned areas of specialization. Admission Requirements Application to the Industrial and Organizational Psychology graduate program is open to any person who has earned a bachelor s degree from an accredited institution and who meets other entrance requirements. Applicants will be judged on their overall ability to do graduate work. Factors that are considered in admission are: GPA from undergraduate and any graduate schools, successful work history after completion of the baccalaureate degree, the admission essay, and letters of recommendation from academic professors or professional or volunteer experience supervisors. Generally, an undergraduate GPA of a 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale is required for admission. There are separate applications for the campus-based and online and blended format tracks of ExCEL. Those interested in the ExCEL track must apply directly at Standardized Testing: The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is not required; however students who have taken the exam may submit their scores to enhance their application. Scores should be sent directly to the school (GRE School Code: 1119) for consideration.

In addition, once accepted, international students must submit the International Student Information form, a copy of their passport, and financial documentation showing sufficient funding for at least one year of study and all living expenses. This documentation must be submitted at least two months prior to the start of the semester in order to allow sufficient time for the school to issue an I-20 for the student to obtain an F-1 visa, if needed. An I-20 visa will not be issued without this documentation. Note: Since the ExCEL track does not require any residency or travel to the US for completion, an I-20 will not be issued for this track. Applicant Notification The Chicago School reviews applications on a rolling basis. Once review begins, complete applications will be considered by the Admission Committee and notified regarding the admission decision. The Chicago School does not share information or provide any feedback regarding admission decisions. If a student is offered admission, an intent to enroll form and a non-refundable tuition deposit* of $500 will be required by the deposit deadline indicated in the offer of admission in order to secure a place in the incoming class. The non-refundable deposit will be applied in full toward the student s tuition upon enrollment. * Students accepted into the ExCEL track or certificates are not required to submit a tuition deposit

4 Policies Transfer of Credit Prior graduate course work, if within the area of study, may be eligible for transfer or waiver of credit. Students accepted to the program may petition by submitting a Petition for Transfer/Waiver of Credit ** and all required documentation. The decision to accept transfer credit is solely that of the school who reserves the right to require satisfactory performance on an examination before awarding a transfer of credit. Satisfactory completion of a competency examination is required before transfer of credit is awarded when the course in question has been taken more than five years prior to admission. No credit will be transferred for course work that is more than 10 years old. Transfers of credit are subject to the following conditions: Transferred course credit is restricted to graduate level courses from a recognized, regionally-accredited graduate degree granting institution. Transfer of credit is awarded only for required courses. Transfer of credit is not granted for clinical practica or for internships. Transfer of credit is granted only for courses in which the grade obtained was a B or higher. Pass/Fail grades are not eligible. Each hour of credit accepted for transfer will be assessed a fee of $125 per credit hour. The maximum number of semester credits that may be transferred for the campus based track of the I/O program is 12 hours and for the ExCEL track nine hours. **The Petition for Transfer/Waiver of Credit is available on the school website by following the Current Student link to Student and Academic Services Forms on the Student Services page. Please submit all required documentation with each petition. Any credit approved for transfer will not be added to the student s academic record until after the second week of their first semester. Waiver of Courses Any domestic or international student with previous graduate course may request a waiver of course work. Waiver of courses does not reduce the total number of hours of course work to be completed at The Chicago School; it permits students to substitute course work as approved by the department chair. An international student, who has completed an undergraduate course(s) that, in the judgment of the department chair, is equivalent to a required course at The Chicago School, may apply for the course to be waived. Waiver will not apply to undergraduate courses offered by U.S. educational institutions. M.A. students may seek a waiver for a total of 12 credit hours; ExCEL students may seek a waiver for a total of nine credit hours. Those Master s students seeking both a waiver and transfer of credit hours may not exceed a total of 12 credit hours; ExCEL track students may not exceed nine credit hours. Residency Requirement It is expected that students will fulfill all degree requirements through courses offered at The Chicago School. Under unusual circumstances, and subject to the approval of the department chair, a student may be permitted to complete certain course requirements at another institution. For ExCEL tracks, two distance courses have a blended (online and on-campus) format and therefore require a one weekend intensive seminar on campus. Students are notified at the onset of the course of the exact date that they are required to report to campus. Satisfactory Progress Matriculated students must be continuously enrolled in the program until graduation unless granted an approved leave of absence. Satisfactory progress semester hours do not include waiver or transfer credit hours. No student will be permitted to take less than three semester hours of course work in the fall or spring semesters unless that student has fewer than three semester hours of course work remaining or is on an approved leave of absence. In order to receive financial aid, however, you must be at least half-time for the semester. Credit Hours per Year and Program Length The maximum duration of the programs is five years. Students must complete, at minimum, nine semester hour credits each calendar year. Students must be enrolled for a minimum of nine semester hours during fall and spring semester and five credits during summer term to be classified as full-time in terms of financial aid. The ExCEL track is a 20-month, half-time program. In order to be classified as half-time in terms of financial aid, students must be enrolled for a minimum of 3.5 credit hours in at least one of the two eight- week fall, spring, or summer terms

5 Graduation Requirements Students must complete the online Petition for Program Completion form in order to have their degree conferred, diploma issued, and to participate, if desired, in the annual commencement ceremony by the end of the third week of the semester in which a student expects to meet the program requirements for the Master of Arts degree. Students who will complete their requirements in the upcoming summer term, and wish to participate in the annual commencement ceremony, must submit the Petition for Program Completion in the spring term by the deadline indicated on the Graduation page of the website. Students must be in good standing in their program and have completed all of their degree requirements before the Master s degree can be conferred. This includes course work and any clinical training (practicum/internship), thesis/dissertation, and/or applied research project, required by the program of study. After all final grades are posted for the student s final semester; a degree audit will be conducted to verify degree completion. The degree is then conferred, posted to the transcript, and a diploma is issued. *Detailed information regarding petitioning and commencement can be found on the website under: Current Student, Student and Academic Services Forms, Petition for Program Completion. The Program Philosophy The Industrial and Organizational Psychology (I/O) Program has adopted the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychologists' (SIOP) recommended areas of study as the basis for its curriculum. It provides students with a broad knowledge of the scientific literature and theoretical principles of organizational and industrial psychology and the application of these principles to the variety of work settings in which I/O psychologists are employed. Students develop an understanding of the way organizations operate, gain the essential assessment, intervention, and consultation skills to help organizations and the individuals within them solve problems, enhance performance, and manage the complexities of today's work environment. The emphasis is on training students to assume professional responsibilities in human resources, consulting, management positions, and organizational-development. Program Objectives 1. To provide students with the foundation in I/O theory and research in order to have the necessary knowledge and skills to lead personnel selection, development, organizational assessment, and interventions. 2. To provide students with the necessary skills in research and statistical methods to become educated consumers of the professional literature, and to draw upon research methodologies in designing interventions and critically approaching problems in an applied setting. These skills will lead to the ability to correctly assess survey results, choose components of a selection system, evaluate performance management at an organizational level, and analyze jobs efficiently. 3. To provide students with the personal and interpersonal skills necessary in the business environment, such as effective communication, conflict negotiation, influence strategies, networking skills, business savvy, and cross-cultural intelligence. Ethical and Professional Behavior I/O program students are expected to develop a working knowledge of the ethical and legal issues pertaining to work in the domain of I/O psychology including, but not limited to, APA s current Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct for Psychologists; relevant federal, state, and local laws, statutes, regulations, and legal precedents (e.g., the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures, 1978) as well as the professional norms, standards, and guidelines relevant to the profession (e.g., Specialty Guidelines for the Delivery of Services by Industrial-Organizational Psychologists, 1981; Principles for the Validation and Use of Personnel Selection Procedures, 1987; and Standards for Educational and Psychological Tests, 1985, see Industrial/Organization Psychology Program Competencies The nine key I/O competencies to be assessed are defined under the four academic institutional goals: Scholarship Critical Thinking: The student is knowledgeable of common thinking fallacies and cognitive biases in evaluation and decision-making situations. The student is able to critically review the work of others, actively search for logic flaws, and create alternative suggestions to problems.

7 Writing Assessment and Requirements Believing that academic preparedness is a key to success in graduate school, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology requires new students to complete its innovative program, Foundations for Scholarship and Practice. This program, offered by the Center for Academic Excellence (CAE), is designed to turbo-charge students graduate experience by offering the skills they need to achieve their dreams. Foundations is an integral part of the first semester s curriculum and all students are required to complete the program successfully and in a timely manner. Foundations for Scholarship and Practice consist of three elements: 1. Writing Assessment Process Each student writes an essay in response to a question and submits it to CAE for scoring. Based on the student s performance, the school may waive the Academic Writing Course requirement (#2, below). Essay submission by the given date is considered successful completion of this element of Foundations. 2. Academic Writing Course This course is taken before or during the first semester at The Chicago School. A final grade of pass is considered successful completion of this element. 3. Academic Focus An online, tutorial-driven orientation to graduate academics. A final grade of pass is considered successful completion of this element. Note: Students in ExCEL will not begin testing until Spring ExCEL Track Option The ExCEL track allows students to learn about new theories, concepts, and best practices relevant to their careers and apply that learning in the workplace. This track is accelerated and offered in two eight-week terms each semester. A typical student schedule would include one threesemester-credit course per term as well as one 5 credit course per term, totaling seven semester credit hours per semester. The program may, therefore, be completed in five semesters or approximately 20 months. The ExCEL track features online courses and one virtual residency one hour Webinar/teleconference per term. Courses are based on: An instructional environment which accepts students as mature learners and allows them to bring their work-related experience and expertise into the class Readings and materials which expose students to new theories, concepts, and best practices relevant to their careers Providing a broader range of workplace experiences and provide multiple perspectives on workplace problems, situations, and challenges from classmates An experienced faculty member who is a personal mentor-guide-facilitator-resource for students Study in the ExCEL track culminates in an applied research project. The Applied Research Project is completed over the length of the program through 10 courses at 5 credits each, in addition to required interactions with facilitators, the student s advisor, and cohort members

8 Industrial/Organizational Psychology Certificate Options-Fully Online Beginning in June 2008, The Chicago School also offers three-course certificate options in the following areas: Organizational Effectiveness, Consumer Psychology, Workplace Diversity, and Leadership for Healthcare Professionals. The program consists of three graduate level courses and can be completed in approximately five months. Participants will earn nine graduate-level credits and a certificate of completion. Internship Requirements (Campus-Based Track Only) The director of Business Psychology internships must approve the student's internship in order for the student to receive credit for training. All sites listed in the Field Placement Database have been previously approved. Students must also develop a site for internship experience. The internship should provide the student with a valuable work experience in which he or she will encounter opportunities to develop relevant and transferable skills that can be used to further his or her career. The following guidelines are provided to help one decide whether an internship opportunity meets the school's guidelines and/or if a current work experience can count toward internship credit. Time Commitment: Each of the internships must provide a minimum of 300 hours (for a total of 600 hours of internship experience). During the 15-week fall and spring semesters, students should expect to work approximately 20 hours per week at the site. Internships completed during the eight-week summer term average to about 37.5 hours per week. Internships lasting two full semesters may count for both internship experiences so long as the student meets the 600-hour requirement. If a student is working 30 or more hours per week while on internship, he or she must be on the part-time track during that semester. The internship should coincide with the start and end dates for the semester in which it takes place. If the internship lasts less than 90% of the full length of the semester, the student must obtain permission from the Business Psychology internship director. For the fall and spring semesters, the internship should overlap the term by at least 13.5 weeks; summer internships should overlap at least seven weeks of the semester. Exceptions to the standard time commitment may be made for students who are in full-time career positions and therefore unable to complete a traditional internship. The Business Psychology department chair and the Business Psychology internship director must approve alternative training experiences or project substitutions (e.g., a substantial, semester-long I/O-relevant project). Relevance: The internship should involve the student in learning specific, transferable, I/O-relevant or HR-relevant professional skills. Internships involving only clerical work (e.g. photocopying, filing) or professional work of a non-i/o nature (e.g. telephone sales of non-i/o products and services) will not be approved as an internship experience. Payment: Some but not all internships are paid. Consistent with the mission of school, students are strongly encouraged to consider completing internships in agencies that provide community services or that serve underserved populations. Many of these agencies, unfortunately, do not have the funding that larger corporate organizations can often provide. Internship Options Below are some examples of possible internships that would be approved by the Business Psychology internship director so long as they meet the time and relevance requirements: A pre-existing I/O internship A pre-existing HR internship A current job Project work for community service organizations Project work for independent employment Project work for the Business Psychology Consulting Center Grading Students are given a letter grade for the quality of their work performance in the Internship Seminar. Additionally, the I/O internship director reviews the evaluation of the student s performance by the internship site supervisor, as well as the number of internship hours accrued, before the grade is awarded for the internship experience. More details about the grading process for I/O internships are provided in the internship seminar course syllabus
