Ergonomics & Safety

The COSH option for Ergonomics and Safety will be appropriate for baccalaureate prepared students seeking recognition of additional competency in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) as it applies to ergonomics and safety. Many of these students will already have jobs in industry or government agencies and will be seeking to enhance their knowledge and skills to facilitate professional certification and career advancement. It is expected that some students pursuing the ergonomics and safety option will continue to master’s or doctoral studies in OSH.
