MMC 5279 - User Experience (UX) Theory and Research

3 Credits

In this course, students will be introduced to the theories behind Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and apply them directly to User Experience Design (UXD). The students will learn the UXD process through a hands-on approach to bi-weekly projects that build off one another and accumulate to the final project, a presentation of the student’s UXD recommendation for a website, or other digital media. The final presentation is a branded user experience complete with user flows, personas, information architecture, wireframes, and insights from usability testing to optimize their experience. This course will teach students to effectively communicate and evaluate user experiences.

Prerequisites: None.
