- Required Textbook: Think Like a UX Researcher
User experience is a highly in demand field which requires a holistic understanding of the design process. In this program, you will complete a real module from the University of Minnesota’s Human Factors and Ergonomics Graduate program. Through these courses, you’ll gain both artful and scientific skills of conducting, implementing, and evaluating user experience design and research.
By the time you complete this program, you will apply your new career skills by designing a proposal and developing a user experience product for your organization or interests. You can use your UX Design MasterTrack Certificate as a pathway to the associated Human Factors and Ergonomics Graduate Program or the Graphic Design-track Design Graduate programs from the University of Minnesota.
The certificate welcomes working professionals who seek to broaden their marketability and organizational value by applying user experience design to their chosen field as well as students who seek educational opportunities to explore learning user experience design on a post-bachelor level. As a MasterTrack Certificate student, you will master new skills through four graduate level courses that will require 6-8 hours of study per week. You will join our collaborative and engaging online learning community, complete hands-on projects, and collaborate with peers, researchers, and practitioners from the vibrant Twin Cities design community. You will also benefit from timely feedback, live sessions, and lectures provided by guest speakers like design leaders from US Bank, 3M, and more.
