Overview

In conjunction with the Bachelor of Science in Human Factors Psychology and the traditional master's degree in Human Factors and Systems, the Department of Human Factors and Systems also offers a five-year master's degree program in Human Factors and Systems. The five-year master's program offers upper-level undergraduates in the major the chance to begin their graduate work while completing their bachelor's degree program.

The program is open to all undergraduate Human Factors students who meet eligibility requirements that include a CGPA of 3.20 and junior-year standing.

Student applications will be reviewed for the program, and students accepted into the five-year master's program will be notified of such at the end of their junior year. During their senior undergraduate year, they will take HFS 500 and one additional graduate course (six credits) which will fulfill requirements for both the bachelor's and the master's degree program. Five-year master's students are required to complete 30 credits of graduate work to complete the degree program. Both the Bachelor of Science degree in Human Factors Psychology and the Master of Human Factors and Systems degree will be awarded when the student completes the master's degree program.

Practicum

Students will be encouraged to have an applied practicum experience. This requirement may be fulfilled in several ways, including co-ops, internships or working with an on-campus research team. Practicums provide opportunities to gain practical experience in real-world settings. A practicum experience is highly regarded by employers and increases the student's employment potential after graduation. Typically, students will engage in practical experience activities toward the end of the degree program so they can take maximum advantage of their undergraduate experience. If students pursue internships, they can find a wealth of support and information from our career services office.
