User Experience and Web Design

"As designers, we have always fought to be involved in strategic decisions early on. Now that we have a seat at the table, what are we going to do about it?"
—"State of UX in 2018" UX Trends

Students in our User Experience and Web Design certificate program, formerly Web and Interactive Media Design, learn from some of the top user experience designers in Silicon Valley. Learn how to anticipate user needs and how to design the look and feel of new products that are intuitive and easy to use while providing business with the customer analytics necessary to justify design investment. The user experience designer is increasingly called into early discussions for web, mobile, and software applications to help create more dynamic and interactive products. Students in this program get to study customer behavior and collaborate with design team members. Newly revised curriculum offers several tracks: Visual Design, User Experience Design, Design Implementation, and Site Management.
