User Experience/Human-Computer Interaction (UX/HCI)

The user experience/human-computer interaction (UX/HCI) minor gives students the ability to focus on the interactions between people and computer-based technologies. Students will explore how interactions between people and computers can be used, designed, implemented and evaluated. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, the UX/HCI minor covers a breadth of emerging technologies: AI, bots, social robots, web-based interfaces, and interactive and immersive media.
