The Interaction Design Bachelor of Science degree program blends the fields of design, user experience (UX), and technology. Interaction Designers ensure that products are appealing, effective and intuitive for their users. They create the experiences we have every day with smart objects, devices, and the web. There is strong demand for more UX/interaction designers in today’s high technology industries. The Interaction Design degree is a four-year program, the first two years of which are comprised of the existing Graphic Design Associate degree, and will provide students with the skills necessary to enter this exciting field.
