Brandeis Online

Master's in User-Centered Design

Program Snapshot

Improve experiences by focusing on the human factor

In the most successful apps, devices and software, form follows function. That's why demand has skyrocketed for user experience design experts.

By earning your online master's degree in User-Centered Design online from Brandeis GPS, you'll study at the intersection of psychology, creativity and technology. While other programs focus primarily on design aesthetics, we explore the science of human behavior to gain a deeper understanding of user experience (UX) and engagement principles. Additionally, students are required to take a capstone which is a seminar-style course intended to bring together all of the prior knowledge and skills that the student has obtained. Students will work independently or in small teams to produce a prototype of a product or system.
