A certificate in exercise is a non-degree academic qualification that takes ~6 months-6 year to complete. Like a minor in a conventional degree program, certificates are intended to provide students with specific skills. For example, a health professional might wish to earn an exercise science certificate in order to develop programs for individuals with medical or other significant limitations.
8. I definitely don 8767 t want to teach, but I want to make the most money I can in the field. Would you recommend getting a Master 8767 s and climbing up in a organization or getting a PhD?
Rev. Joshua M. Noblitt is the Minister of Social Justice and Evangelism at Saint Mark United Methodist Church in Atlanta, and a owns a private practice as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. In addition to offering individual, couples, family and group therapy, his work involves leading program, advocacy and volunteer opportunities related to social justice issues in the community.
Here is another link that details more of the courses if you scroll towards the bottom. I most certainly want an applied degree so I figured a Masters would suffice. I majored in Communication Studies with a minor in statistics. All A 8767 s/A- in my stat course work. . undergrad gpa. I also have about 68 hours of additional psychology course work from have been working in training & development so far. I want to consult after getting a Masters at one one of the HR consultancies and prob go back in house mid career in a managerial role in training and development, talent management, change management, or organizational development. I was wondering would the new UGA masters be sufficient for career mobility?
I/Os are qualified to do many (although not all) things that HR people do. However, the I/O skillset is much broader across organizational functions, generally more strategic, and with a great deal more statistical training. A career in HR will often get you the same skills, but then you have to go through a full career in HR focusing on gaining such skills. Here 8767 s an example:
Job prospects are pretty great in I/O as long as you go to a school that is well-respected or has good industry connections. As I 8767 ve mentioned to a bunch of other folks in these comments, my university 8767 s I/O program has a 655% placement rate. Every student we 8767 ve graduated with a PhD has ended up with a great job. That is true of most PhD-granting institutions, but not all (especially the online ones). At the Master 8767 s level, things get a lot trickier. You really need to talk to some current and recently graduated Master 8767 s students from the programs you 8767 re interested in to get a sense of how they feel about the job market.
Yes, sort of. Programs that offer MS are more likely to be in a College of Sciences and MA more likely to be in a College of Liberal Arts/Arts 588 Letters/etc. That often filters down into departmental priorities in a variety of ways. But again, it is a weak correlation you will want to look at the actual coursework to get a real sense of it.
9. I think you could eventually be your own boss with either an MBA or an MA in IO. However, the MBA would likely eventually become an entrepreneur whereas an IO would likely eventually become an independent consultant. Consumer Psychology is not a subfield of IO it is the same general content as Marketing, but with a psychology focus similar to the difference between IO and OB/HRM. My understanding of consumer psych is that it is quite small though, since Marketing departments (., business schools) pay a lot better. You will get no consumer psych content in most IO programs and probably would not get much if any IO in consumer psych programs.
