The McColl Master of Science in Organization Development develops skilled change agents who are dedicated to improving personal and organizational performance through the utilization of behavioral science interventions in planned change efforts. The MSOD program, the only MS degree of its kind in the region, is a 36-credit hour program designed for working professionals who are interested in designing and leading organizational change. The McColl MSOD curriculum is particularly unique because it includes an emphasis on coaching and leadership development. Students have the opportunity to graduate with an MS in Organization Development and a Certificate in Coaching.
Although the program will be appropriate for a wide and diverse range of professionals, the program will especially benefit the following:
- Internal and External OD Consultants
- Human Resource Managers and Generalists
- Training and Development Managers
- Internal and External Executive Coaches
- Organizational Effectiveness Managers
- Facilitators, Trainers and Coaches
The MSOD program curriculum is designed for the needs of working professionals and provides a flexible part-time, evening schedule. Students can finish in as little as two years, or spread their coursework across multiple semesters to accommodate personal schedules and needs. Most classes meet one evening per week from 6-8:45pm, Monday through Thursday. You may begin the program in the fall or spring term.
In order to be considered for admission as a degree candidate to the MSOD program, an applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution and have five years of professional work experience.
