Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri, is pleased to announce that a new master’s of applied science degree in human factors and usability testing will be introduced in August. This degree is unique, in that it combines the core courses often associated with an MBA (including economics, marketing, organization theory, and organizational communications) with specific coursework and experience in human factors.

The goal is to educate master’s-level professionals with both the general business skills necessary to succeed as part of a multidisciplinary team and
the research, design, and technical skills necessary to contribute meaningfully on usability and user-centered design. Graduates will gain practical experience working on a variety of industry projects. The campus, just north of the Kansas City airport, gives us easy access to a number of telecommunications, aircraft, medical technology, financial services, GPS, and consumer products companies.
