Through research collaboration and social support, the student culture at Mason is perhaps one of the greatest assets of the graduate program in Industrial/Organizational psychology. It is certainly one of the most rewarding aspects for students.
Our students are regularly involved in co-authored research with other students. Multiple students will often work with faculty on large-scale projects, while it is also common to see students collaborate with each other on student-only projects. The goal: learn from each other via collaboration, not competition!
The Mason I/O student culture is enhanced by long-lasting friendships and many social events with those in our program as well as other psychology programs. Students often collaborate across psychology programs as a result of the great networking here at Mason. The psychology graduate students also regularly field teams - and win championships - in intramural sports!
