Prospective Students

General Info

The Ph.D. program in I/O psychology at CUNY is jointly administered by Baruch College and The Graduate Center and is designed to prepare students for a wide range of career paths in academic, organizational, and consulting settings. Baruch College also offers a terminal M.S. degree and an executive M.S. degree, both in I/O psychology. Although I teach and am involved in all three programs, they are separate entities with separate admission processes and criteria.

Applications to the I/O psychology doctoral program are made through The Graduate Center here and are usually due December 1st of each year (double-check!) A list of admission prerequisites is available here for you to peruse

I especially encourage women and people that identify with groups that have historically been excluded from academia (e.g., Black, Indigenous, and other people of color; people with disabilities; people that belong to the LGBTQIA+ community; first-gen students; students from low income families) to apply. As of Fall 2023, a 40% of doctoral students self-identify as BIPOC and roughly 70% of them self-identify as women. 

The program uses a multiple mentorship model, therefore students are not constrained to work with only one faculty member and working in multiple labs is actually encouraged. This also means that all admission decisions are made collegially by the program faculty. If admitted, you may be assigned to work with me during your first year research assistantship if our research interests match, but I cannot unilaterally admit you into the program to work primarily with me.
