MAS: Human Factors and Usability Testing FAQ

What are the admissions requirements?
To be admitted to graduate studies at Western, an applicant must complete an Application for Graduate Admission. Admission to the program requires successful completion of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution with a minimum undergraduate 2.75 GPA on a 4.0 scale, a score of 450 or higher on the quantitative section of the Graduate Records Exam (GRE) and a score of not less than 400 on any section of the GRE. Preference will be given to students with majors in a human factors related field (psychology, business, anthropology, engineering, computer science, technical communication or graphic design), although any major will be considered. If you already have an MBA degree from an accredited university you will only need to complete the Human Factors coursework (i.e., the MAS Core, business coursework, is waived).
