The Occupational Ergonomics and Health program incorporates Northeastern University’s unique experiential learning approaches by immersing students in real work scenarios and case studies. Based in public health approaches applied to the community of work places, students will complete projects both individually and in teams to develop skills to administer comprehensive and integrated programs for the workplace. This is the only degree program that combines ergonomics and health wellness programs.
The 21st century workplace demands an interprofessional approach to reach across organizational boundaries to ensure health and safety values in the workplace are uniform and consistent to most effectively impact worker health. Bouvé College of Health Sciences’ unique interprofessional approach to health care will ensure students develop skills to meet this need.
