The University of Missouri-St. Louis offers a program of studies leading to a Masters of Arts degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. This program embraces the scientist-practitioner model and provides a balanced training in I/O. This emphasis provides "industrial" training in areas such as personnel selection, training, and test development/validation, as well as "organizational" training in areas such as work motivation, leadership, mentoring, and group processes. Conducting research with faculty and other training experiences are also incorporated. Masters students take 45 hours of courses. Completion of the Masters program does not qualify one for admittance to the doctoral program. Masters students must reapply for consideration to the doctoral program. Additionally, Masters students are not required to complete an empirical research thesis.
