Industrial Organizational Behavior Management Schedule with Thesis

The recommended program of study in the Department of Psychology at Western Michigan University differs for students who enter the program in even numbered fall semesters (2016, 2018, etc.) and odd numbered fall semesters (2017, 2019, etc.) because some required courses are only offered every other spring semester.
