The Social-Organizational Psychology subprogram

Tell a Friend

The Social–Organizational program consists of two divisions: social and organizational. Each of the divisions provides both theoretical and applied knowledge.

For instance, the social division provides theoretical courses in: cognitive theories, intergroup relations, and conflict mediation, and more applied courses on questionnaire building and advanced social research. The organizational division deals with theoretical issues such as: career motivation, emotions in organizations, leadership in organization, and socialization of employees, as well as the more applied topics of organizational diagnosis, organizational development, and interview methods.

The program's graduates find careers in various places, such as: academic institutions, research facilities, the army (research or organizational positions), the industry, consulting companies, and more.

Admissions procedure

Each candidate must submit two academic recommendation letters on the designated form. Individual recommendations from employers do not contribute to the candidate's acceptance chances. Only candidates who have graduated many years ago should submit recommendation letters from employers. The resume section in the departmental application form should be filled out in detail, including facts that contribute to issues related to subprogram. There is no need for an additional resume of any sort.
