Program description

The MS program in user experience combines topics in web, human factors, visual displays and technical communication to make products, systems and services useful, usable and desirable. Students learn how to research user needs, identify criteria for successful products and services, prototype those products and services, and refine them through usability testing and other user-centered methods.

User experience skills are increasingly valued by industry, yet are not typically covered in-depth in traditional engineering or technical communication programs. Students with a master’s degree in user experience will enhance their employment potential.

*GRE Waiver: GRE scores will NOT be required for all MS applications for Spring 2022 and Fall 2022 admission terms. Terms beyond that are subject to change. GRE waivers do not apply to PhD applications.
