The Human Factors and Ergonomics Graduate Program is an interdisciplinary program with graduate faculty representing the College of Design, the College of Science and Engineering, the College of Education and Human Development, the College of Liberal Arts, the School of Public Health, and the Carlson School of Management. The administrative home of the program is the College of Design.
This program is the first in the country to offer a PhD that is specifically a Human Factors degree, rather than a degree in a discipline such as Psychology or Industrial Engineering, which can be given a Human Factors emphasis.
The unique advantage of our Human Factors and Ergonomics Graduate Program is that students gain a perspective from multiple disciplinary standpoints in addition to excellent and rigorous training.
Master of Science (Plan A with thesis or Plan C) and Doctor of Philosophy degrees are offered in this program.
