Program Description

The UX Design Minor at Western is intended for industrial design, psychology, design, business administration/marketing and computer science majors only. Each discipline will take courses that add to their foundational understanding of the elements of user experience design. These courses are different depending on the students’ major.

The intended outcome is for each student to be prepared to work in professional multidisciplinary teams designing user experiences. They will be able to cross-communicate using the various languages and terminology of each discipline. They will be able to understand the unique perspective and alternative approaches that each discipline provides. And in the end, they will have a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, collaborative interaction design project to show prospective employers.
