Digital Experience Design Minor

DXD_FAS_MINOR_HEADER_IMG


OUT-OF-FACULTY MINOR |   Bachelor of Arts   |   Bachelor of Science


If you are fascinated by the ways people act and interact with the digital world—and you would like to play a role in enhancing those interactions—consider a minor in Digital Experience Design.

In this minor, you are introduced to user design issues, theories and methods through foundational courses. By learning to identify, understand and address the gaps in the ways clients use digital products, such as websites, apps, video games and wearable interfaces, you find a way to put the user's experience first.

If you are a computer science student, this minor gives you the opportunity to develop a specialization in an area closely related to your major. For other arts and science majors, you can apply knowledge from your discipline to the design of digital products.


Courses and requirements

This minor is open to students in the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science. Courses for your minor are only one component of the degree requirements you need to graduate. To see all courses required for the minor, check the program of study in the academic calendar.
