The Department of Human Factors helps students understand the interactions of humans and the other elements of a system. Embry-Riddle is the only university in the U.S. — and possibly the world — offering a bachelor's, a master's, and a Ph.D. degree program in Human Factors.

The department’s primary focus is on Human Factors, followed by Ergonomics, so the main emphasis is on psychology, not machinery. Students study fascinating interdisciplinary topics like Psychology, Aerospace Life Sciences, Ergonomics, and Human-Computer Interaction. The programs emphasize applications almost from the first day.
