Interaction Design Concentration

Creative Media students eager to explore the potential of human relationships with computer systems and the evolution of the field may want to pursue Interaction Design as a secondary concentration.

While learning about creative ways to approach technology, you'll be introduced to the sensory side of interfaces—sounds, images, how pages move—with a focus on interactivity as a design element.

  • Examine our interactions with computer systems; study the design of easy-to-learn interfaces and conceptualize and build websites, responsive media installations, audio-processing applications, and other projects.
  • Expand your viewpoint with an interdisciplinary approach through courses that draw from a range of fields: human-computer interaction, graphic design, new-media art, architecture, media studies, and interactive design.
  • Learn to skillfully manipulate our experience of the digital world.
  • Position yourself to be successful in a future that promises to be more and more driven by digital technology.

Courses in the Interaction Design concentration include:
