About Organizational Psychology

Organizational psychology is the study of social processes in organizations.  Organizational psychologists study individuals and groups in formal organizational settings. They seek to gain a better understanding of the person-organization interface, with the ultimate goal of enhancing organizational effectiveness and individual well-being. Researchers in Carleton’s organizational psychology area take a scientist-practitioner approach to their own research and the training of graduate students, emphasizing theory, research skills, and practical application.

Core faculty members are examining topics that include:

  • Occupational health, safety, and employee well-being
  • Employee morale and organizational life
  • Research on program evaluation (RoE)
  • The impact of the work-life interface on organizational and personal outcomes
