U.S. News and World Report has recognized George Mason’s Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Psychology program in the newest edition of its graduate school rankings. The program is ranked sixth nationally, up from an eighth-place spot in 2003.

George Mason’s program is tied with those of the Georgia Institute of Technology and the University of Akron.

“While the faculty and a very strong corps of graduate students share in this achievement, I especially want to thank Rich Klimoski [dean of the School of Management], who led the program into national ranking, and Lois Tetrick [program coordinator], who led it to its current ranking,” says Robert Smith, Psychology Department chair.

U.S. News rankings are based solely on the results of peer assessment surveys sent to academics in the discipline in fall 2004.
