The Psychology Department at Clemson University has four or five openings
for the Fall 2000 semester in our Human Factors (Engineering) Psychology
Masters' Program. All students are fully funded and tuition and fees are
reduced to under $500 per semester for all students. Additionally,
students complete a paid internship in the summer between the first and
second years of the program. Program emphasis is placed on the methods
needed to evaluate the capabilities and limitations of human performance in
real-world technical environments. Potential areas of research include:
perception, user-centered design methods, usability testing, transportation
safety, display design, workload analysis, human computer interaction,
cognitive processes, motor control, control systems, transfer of training,
and physical ergonomics.

Our Human Factors graduates have been unusually successful; 100% have
enjoyed either relevant employment in industry or admission into a relevant
doctoral program. The Clemson M.S. program in Human Factors Psychology is
accredited by the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society. All interested
students are encouraged to visit our web site at We actively seek applications
from minority students.
