Ne öğreneceğim?

Human factors, also known as ergonomics or engineering psychology, is a scientific discipline which examines human behavior and capabilities in order to find the best ways to design products, equipment, and systems for safe, e­ffective, and satisfying use by people.

The MS in Psychology, Option in Human Factors, is designed to prepare students to apply research-focused human factors skills to the design of jobs, information systems, consumer products, workplaces, and equipment in order to improve user performance, safety, and comfort. Our Human Factors program is accredited by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society.

The MS in Psychology, Option in Human Factors at CSULB is designed to prepare students to apply human factors skills to the design of jobs, information systems, consumer products, workplaces and equipment in order to improve user performance, safety and comfort. This program is accredited by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society, the accrediting board for human factors programs in the U.S.

Faculty in the CSULB MSHF in Psychology are currently working on a number of topics such as human-computer interaction, usability testing, auditory/visual display design, knowledge engineering and decision-making. Students in the program acquire a background in experimental psychology and research methods. They are trained in the application of human factors theories in courses such as computer applications and interface design. A practicum course gives students experience of how Human Factors is applied in a work-place setting. Special-topics seminars, in areas such as large-scale simulation and usability testing, complement the core program of study. Students also complete a thesis in their chosen area of human factors.
