User Experience

Online Certificate, post-baccalaureate program

Anticipate human needs and create effortless experiences.

User experience (UX) is all about people and how they interact with a product, service, or system to achieve their goals. Creating a positive and intuitive experience for the end user takes research, problem solving, collaboration, and testing throughout the design process. If you have your bachelor’s degree and want to learn how to create solutions using a human-centered design approach, our 18-credit online certificate program in User Experience can help you achieve your goals. This certificate program is for working professionals and recent grads who want to break into a career in user experience.

You’ll learn the fundamentals of user experience and the role of qualitative and quantitative research in design. Dive into conducting research to understand a user’s pain points, generate possible solutions, and make functional prototypes that you’ll test and refine. Throughout this program, you'll learn from industry practitioners using the latest tools and techniques of User Experience professionals.

Discover the role of user interface (UI) design in making solutions that are not only functional but visually appealing—something people would enjoy using. Learn about the business side of design—project planning, budgeting, writing proposals, and studio practices—to prepare you for working as part of a team or for yourself.
