Learn UX design

User experience is a growing field within graphic information technology and other industries. The online UX design degree offers an interdisciplinary foundation in design, research and communication. You’ll develop applied skills in gathering user information, analyzing data and communicating through visual design. Coursework integrates studies from human systems engineering and technical communication. These fields offer a complete picture of the dynamic field of end-user experience.

As a student in the undergraduate user experience program, you’ll gain a conceptual understanding of visual design technologies and the human experience of interacting with a website, web application, software or other types of systems. You’ll also learn how to research user psychology, design concepts that fulfill user needs and run usability tests. Although the user experience degree is in the disciplinary home of graphic information technology, you’ll explore various perspectives of the field. These include human-computer interaction, information architecture, technical writing, web authoring and more.

What is user experience design?

 

User experience design, also known as UX design, is the art and science of designing easy-to-use applications, desktop software, websites and other digital or physical products. UX designers understand human-computer interaction and incorporate aspects of branding, design, usability and function.

A product that utilizes user experience design creates relevant and useful experiences for users so they find value and satisfaction from interacting with the product. UX designers evaluate the entire process of acquiring and integrating the product while thinking about its ease of use, efficiency, utility and value.

What skills do I learn in UX classes?

Your user experience coursework will span the fields of graphic information technology, human systems engineering and technical communication. Course topics may include graphic communication, design illustration, web content design, digital publishing and more.
