UX/UI Fundamentals

Our UX/UI part-time course starts from the beginning. Your users should be top-of-mind during product design cycles, so you'll start by learning what it means to have human-centered design. You'll perform user research using various techniques, and put these ideas to practice in your first projects as you learn guiding principles behind UI design.

Usability and Digital Product Prototyping

Next, you'll get started on wireframing - a crucial UX design technique that can be done on both paper and using software. This will allow you to begin the iterative design process as your course professors guide help you deepen your understanding of accessibility and usability through design.

Iterative Design & Final Projects

Our program's finale focuses on the end stages of developing digital products via user research. You'll learn how to decide what to improve and test with your users. Your final project will allow you to put all your new skills to use on a real industry problem, and teach you how to present your findings and your project to others.
