Full Text: Cornell will offer a new doctorate in human behavior and design (HBD), the first program of its kind in New York State beginning in the fell 2009. Offered in the College of Human Ecology's Department of Design and Environmental Analysis (DEA), the program will draw on DEA's specialties in ergonomics; social, cognitive, and environmental psychology; facility planning and management; and interim and industrial and industrial design. It will be the only program nationwide that is housed in a department equally represented by social scientists and designers.

"The timing of this program could, not be better given the explosion of interest in environmental issues generally, and more specifically, in the relationship between the planning, design and management of the built environment, and health and well-being," said Franklin Becker, DEA department chair.
