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.
