The Department of Psychology and Communication Studies (PCS) at the University of Idaho offers a Master of Science in experimental psychology, with an emphasis in human factors psychology. The human factors emphasis dates back to 1984 and is an interdisciplinary effort between the Department of Psychology and the College of Engineering. We offer thesis and non-thesis options and the curriculum includes internships and collaborative projects in addition to traditional classroom studies.
The human factors graduate program prepares you to apply psychological principles in business, consulting firms and in government. You also have the option to continue your academic studies and to pursue a Ph.D. and build a career in teaching or research.
Currently there are approximately 30 graduate students in the program, which means you’ll have abundant opportunities to interact with your professors inside the classroom and in the research and lab environment.
