Design interactive and innovative digital products and services.

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. With our Interaction Design concentration, you will develop creative confidence and build a toolbox of technical skills that can be used in a variety of career settings. Through courses in this concentration, you can:

  • 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

All Creative Media students are required to select a Primary Area of Focus and a Complementary Area of Focus. Shown here is the curriculum for the 12-credit Complementary Area of Focus. Interaction Design is not currently offered as a Primary Area of Focus.
