The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Psychology and Safety degree program integrates applied psychology with physiology, ergonomics, and safety management for a truly practice-oriented education. With approximately 70 percent of aviation accidents resulting from human error, there is great need for professionals who understand human behavior, how industries evolve over time, and can create systems that make us safer and more successful. Students learn from industry experts with hands-on training in the Cognition & Behavior Lab, Ergonomics Lab, and the one of a kind Robertson Aircraft Accident Investigation Lab, as well as having numerous opportunities for professional development and networking.
The successful completion of the Bachelor of Science in Industrial Psychology & Safety requires a minimum of 120 credit hours. Students will complete a general education core, a math and science core, and a Psychological Science/Safety core. Completion of a minor is strongly recommended but not required.
