Some elective courses may be taken outside of the Department of Psychology. Courses restricted to clinical psychology majors cannot be taken as electives. With careful selection of electives, internship, and research focus, students will be able to develop specialization in performance analysis and training, personnel evaluation and placement, or aspects of group and organizational processes in industrial/organizational psychology.
