Creating dynamic user journeys, from concept to execution
Individuals increasingly rely on mobile phones, tablets and computers to interact with brands and products. This rise of multichannel consumers has created an increased demand for experts in user experience (UX) design who can provide streamlined, visual and user-friendly digital experiences. Such professionals are vital to large corporations and small startups; nonprofits, charitable organizations and government agencies; as well as colleges and universities.
The online Graduate Certificate in User Experience Design provides you with a comprehensive understanding of user-centered design. You’ll become versed in the entire process of acquiring and integrating a product, including aspects of branding, design, usability and function. By the end, you’ll be able to effectively research, design, develop, test and prototype an end-to-end user experience on any device.
Credits earned throughout this program also may be transferred into the online MS in Interactive Media and Communications upon acceptance into the program. Career, resume and portfolio advice is also available to students, as is an exclusive network of more than 350 Quinnipiac interactive media alumni working in all industries.
