UMD IO MPS Resources

Prospective applicants for the program should contact the program at iomps [at] for any questions they have about the program. If you have any questions about the program coursework, professors, career, IO in general, or other professional/personal concerns, please contact iomps [at]

All faculty in the program are available to talk to students, alumni, and prospective applicants. In addition to advice and guidance, Drs. Aiken, Yusko, Arun, Hanges, Cooper, and Professor Winslow keep students updated on job openings and developments in IO Psychology throughout their time at UMD and after they graduate.

At this time, we are unable to provide scholarships or graduate assistantships through our program. However, there are at times teaching assistantships available in the Department of Psychology, and competitive graduate assistantships available on campus that our students secure.
