The Department of Human Factors and Behavioral Neurobiology helps students understand the interactions of humans with other elements of a system. From neuroscience to human factors psychology, 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 as well as a bachelor’s in aerospace physiology.
