Minor - Human Systems Integration
The Human Systems Integration (HSI) minor: (1) studies the cognitive, perceptual, and performance capabilities and limitations of people as they interact with sociotechnical systems and devices (e.g., energy and transportation systems, computers, mobile devices, workplaces); and (2) seeks to apply evidence-based principles in the development of human-centered systems and devices. The HSI minor aims to provide students with interdisciplinary training to prepare to them to work in cross-functional teams to optimize human capabilities, increase system efficiency, reliability, and safety, and minimize error.
At least 12 units outside of preparation for the minor must be separate and distinct from the units used for the major program of the student. See a departmental advisor for approval of courses. Visit the Psychology Department Advising website for more information.
It is permissible for Psychology Majors to have a minor in Human Systems Integration.
University Graduation Requirements
To be awarded a minor, at least 12 units of coursework must be completely distinct and separate from the coursework in the major (University Policy S16-4).
