The Industrial and Organizational Psychology program from Louisiana Tech University prepares students to work in areas relating to applied behavioral science in organizations and business.  


Outside of class, students have opportunities to gain hands-on experience through involvement on various research and applied project teams with faculty supervision through our Applied Research for Organizational Solutions (AROS) group.

Key Features 

  • The Ph.D. program at Louisiana Tech University involves rigorous preparation in psychological foundations, research methods/statistical analysis, Industrial and Organizational Psychology, and successful completion and defense of a dissertation involving original research.
  • The program generally requires three to four years of full-time study post-baccalaureate. The actual amount of time needed varies depending on student prior preparation (a limited amount of credit may be requested for prior graduate work) and progress in the program. Most students accepted into the program receive a graduate assistantship with a stipend.

Programme Structure

  • The I/O Psychology Doctoral Program is committed to diversity and embeds this initiative throughout the program curricula. The I/O Program strives to produce culturally competent professionals who are advocates for social justice and well equipped to meet the needs of a diverse clientele.
  • Furthermore, the program strives to provide a supportive and encouraging learning environment for the training of diverse individuals and providing opportunities in diverse settings for a broad spectrum of individuals. The program avoids any restrictions that are irrelevant to success in graduate training.
