TECHNOLOGY AS AN EXPERIENCE

Whether you’re building smartphone apps or software for medical systems, business interfaces, or games, the user experience makes or breaks whether or not it’s successful.

Blend creativity with science in an exciting program that dives deep into what makes people fall in love with an app – or delete it immediately.
Get a thorough theoretical grounding in software design, the psychology of user experience, art theory, and much more in an interdisciplinary master’s program.
Prepare for an exciting and lucrative career in UX/UI. As more and more organizations recognize the essential role that design plays in technology, the job market for UX professionals is exploding.
BRING YOUR CREATIVE SIDE
One of the best parts of UX/IX is its interdisciplinary nature. Your classmates will come from all kinds of backgrounds – the ideal setting for working in user experience and design. Everybody has a unique perspective that enables them to work in teams to create beautiful and functional apps and products.
If you’re an arts major looking to dip your toes in technology, or a computer scientist who wants to unleash your creativity, this program will help you find balance in both worlds and empower you to accept high level job offers looking for leaders in the field.
No experience? No problem. While the MS in Human-Centered Design is best suited for students who already hold a bachelor’s degree in computing, design, psychology, or another related field, students who are interested in the program can enroll with the assistance of an advisor.
