University of Washington
Master of Human-Computer Interaction + Design
A truly interdisciplinary experience with world-class faculty and students from four departments in the cross-disciplinary group, DUB: Design-Use-Build:
By integrating several disciplines, this unique graduate program brings together design, technology, and the study of human behavior, creating students who can work seamlessly across these fields to create innovative new products, technologies and services.
In a year-long, project-based curriculum, students learn the latest tools and techniques in user experience and interface design, prototyping, and evaluation. Courses consist of both hands-on studios (often focused on industry-sponsored projects) as well as cutting-edge lecture courses. The combination of theory and practice, with emphasis on making and doing, provides a dynamic, active and robust learning experience.
