Graduate Programs

AdmissionsCoursesStudent Resources

The IUPUI Psychology Department provides its students with both a well-rounded education and the opportunity to explore specific areas of psychology in which they have special interests. Graduate education is a process of further refinement during which students become increasingly more proficient in and knowledgeable of an area of psychological specialization.

The following four areas of specialization are available at IUPUI.

Clinical Psychology (Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)

The Department of Psychology at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) grants a Ph.D. degree in clinical psychology (APA accredited), preparing students for careers as researchers, educators, direct service providers, and administrators. We adhere to a clinical science model of training. As such, students seeking strong research training, in conjunction with clinical training with an emphasis in health and/or rehabilitation, would be the most desirable students for the program. Learn more.

Industrial Organizational Psychology (Masters of Science)

The Industrial/Organizational Psychology (I/O) Master of Science degree program has the explicit goal of being one of the premiere programs of its kind nationwide. The program is designed to prepare individuals for positions in industry or for entry into an I/O doctoral program. The primary focus of the curriculum is on traditional “industrial” (i.e., personnel) psychology and research methods, but students are exposed to the full range of “organizational” topics as well.

Applied Social and Organizational Psychology (PhD)

Building on the 45+ years of success of our master’s program in Industrial/Organizational psychology, the Department of Psychology at IUPUI is pleased to offer a new doctoral degree in Applied Social and Organizational Psychology (ASOP) with a concentration in Diversity Science. Learn more.

Addiction Neuroscience (Doctor of Philosophy, PhD)

The Addiction Neuroscience program trains doctoral students for a career in research on alcoholism and drug abuse, and the effects of exposure to drugs on development and neurophysiology.  We are one of the few doctoral programs focused on the addictions in the nation, and pride ourselves on having strong course work, strong funded researchers focused on cutting edge neuroscience, and strong collaborations in place with the IU School of Medicine. We offer a highly supportive and collaborative environment for both our graduate students and faculty. Learn more.
