User experience (UX) design is more than just a buzzword. It's a Gestalt approach to interactive media design by using a collection of elements to form a whole unit.

UX design places an emphasis on the human side of human-computer interaction (desktop, smart phones, apps, etc.) and its affective results in individuals. It also looks at the human performance aspect of interface design, which relates to the field of ergonomics.

Anything that a user touches, you can be sure that a UX professional was involved.

So it's no wonder that the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that we'll see an 8% increase in job opportunities for various web-related fields, including UX.

Gain the essential skills and tools that these companies need with our various UX and Graphic Design courses and programs. Change careers or expand your expertise as a UX designer, information architect, UX researcher, UI designer, visual designer or content strategist.
