About

Industrial/Organizational psychology contributes to an organization’s success by improving the performance, experience, job satisfaction, and occupational safety and health of the entire organization, as well as the overall health and well-being of its employees. At Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, The Bachelor of Science in Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology builds future leaders and scholars who work in every industry at every level, creating ‘science for a smarter workplace’.

Diverse industry applicability for future careers in this field is just one of the many reasons why U.S. News & World Report has ranked Industrial Psychology as the second best science job in the nation today.
