User Experience Design

User Experience (UX) Design is one of today’s fastest-growing specializations is the customer-centered design used for everything from the web or mobile applications, personal computers, and other devices, meant to craft a meaningful and relevant experience specific to the product.

The 3-course certificate provides students with a foundation in the tools and techniques of UX Design teaching them how to conduct field research, how to objectively evaluate UX Designs, how to take UX Design from concept-to-prototype using appropriate tools such as personas, task models, and user journey mapping, and even application of UX Design in business strategy.

Upon completion, students will have the skills needed to seek out entry-level positions in UX Design and/or advance in their careers and the tech-field.

This certificate can be taken as a stand-alone or in partnership with an SCPS degree. Students can start the program in January each year.
