Human Resource Management – PhD in I/O Pscyhology


Degree Requirements


  • 114 quarter credits
  • Foundation Course (3 cr.)
  • Core Courses (91 cr.)
  • Dissertation (20 cr. [minimum requirement]–120 cr. [8-year maximum timeframe])*

*To complete a doctoral dissertation, students must obtain the academic approval of several independent evaluators including their committee, the University Research Reviewer, and the Institutional Review Board; pass the Form and Style Review; gain approval at the oral defense stage; and gain final approval by the Chief Academic Officer. Students must also publish their dissertation on ProQuest before their degree is conferred. Learn more about the dissertation process in the Dissertation Guidebook.

In general, students are continuously registered in the dissertation course until they complete an approved dissertation, which usually requires more than the minimum terms in the dissertation course shell.
