GRE Information

I-O Area Application Requirements:


Students who enter the MA program in Industrial-Organizational psychology MUST have an Honours degree in Psychology. As well, a thesis, or equivalent research experience, is required.

Because of the research-intensive nature of our program we are most interested in students with a strong background in research methods and statistics.

The I-O Psychology MA and PhD program at Guelph form an integrated graduate degree; consequently, only students interested in completing both the MA and the PhD are encouraged to apply.

English Language Requirements

If English is not your first language the University of Guelph requires that you write a standardized English Language Proficiency Test. See this link for details of acceptable tests and corresponding scores for demonstrating English language proficiency.

How are applicant files evaluated by the I-O Area?

Each application receives an overall evaluation. Given this overall/holistic process, if one part of your application is weaker than another we cannot tell you exactly how that will influence your evaluation.
