    The Program

    Koç University 'Master of Art (MA) in Psychology Program' is a two-year graduate program with two tracks : the Industrial and Organizational Psychology track and the Developmental Psychologytrack. Both tracks combine scientific excellence and applied significance. The Industrial and Organizational Psychology track takes a scientist-practitioner approach to examine and explain human behavior in the workplace, to increase organizational efficiency and to optimize utilization of human potential. The Developmental Psychology track provides specialization in the study of human development throughout the lifespan, particularly child development in the family context. Both tracks have an emphasis on measurement and assessment of human skills, human capacity development, and a cross-cultural approach. These tracks are intended to prepare students for professional careers as well as further graduate work.

    Beyond the scientific gains of participating in the Master's Degree in Koç University's Developmental Psychology Program, the following professional benefits are also expected:

    a) Need for services. There is a growing awareness of the cognitive and socio-emotional needs and problems in child development in the family context. These are actually pan-human issues, with a very wide range, including early childhood development, parent education and sensitization, family communication, developmental handicaps, emotional adjustment problems in childhood, adolescence, adulthood, old age, and the like.

    b) Demand for such a degree. In Istanbul there are more than 32 psychological counseling/guidance centers that cater to the growing needs and problems for which people seek psychological help. These numbers are expected to grow considerably. Similarly in hospitals, pediatric services increasingly include developmental assessment of suspected deficits in psychosocial, cognitive, language, emotional development, conducted by professional psychologists. For professional work in applied developmental work with children, adolescents and families, a Master's Degree in psychology is required.

    c) Other application settings. Beyond counseling centers and hospitals/clinics, developmental/child psychologists are needed in other public and private institutions. Of foremost importance among these are schools (from preschools to universities) where there is a growing need for student counseling, career guidance, etc. Similarly, national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and foundations working with children, young people, education, families require the services of developmental psychologists in order to develop and evaluate programs that are designed to promote healthy development in children. Examples of such programs are interventions to reduce aggression, drug use, substance dependencies such as tobacco dependence, behavior problems associated with hyperactivity and attention deficits, school adjustment difficulties, and programs that promote cognitive growth such as accelerated educational programs and school readiness programs. Developmental Psychologists with rigorous theoretical and methodological training are much needed to design, develop, apply, evaluate and track such programs.

    Beyond the scientific gains of participating in the Master's Degree in Koç University's Industrial & Organizational Psychology Program, the following professional benefits are also expected:

    a) Need for services.
    The value of the human factor has become very clear in the business world. Recent trends emphasize the human aspects of organizations more than the material resources. Research findings emerging from the field of Industrial & Organizational Psychology, especially in the area of Human Resource Management, have fed a large portion of the information to be implemented in the workplace.

    b) Demand for such a degree.
    One of the interesting developments in the companies in Turkey in recent years has been the establishment of Human Resources Departments. Many companies now have vice-president positions for Human Resources. Because of a deficiency in the number of professionals trained in the issues handled in such departments, commonly the staff consists of experts in other fields ranging from Engineering to Education. Currently in Turkey there are hundreds of human resources consulting firms where psychological services are being used. It is imperative that experts well-trained in these human resources issues are prepared by top-notch researchers of this field. A graduate degree program at Koç University has the potential of training and providing to the business world such professionals who are much-needed
