The goal of the human-computer interaction design (HCI/d) program is to teach you to think like a designer. Our approach is research-based, but never rigid. Though students follow a highly structured curriculum that prepares them for a professional career, there is plenty of room to pursue individual interests.
During your time here, you will refine your personal design philosophy through course work that:
- Teaches you the key history, literature, and research of HCI design (HCI/d)
- Introduces you to multiple frameworks, research techniques, and creative exercises
- Helps you learn the skills necessary to use and design current and emerging applications
- Explores the socioeconomic consequences of implementing technologies in different cultures
