Interaction Design Curriculum

Start exploring design, programming, and interaction psychology in your very first semester.

In Champlain's Upside-Down Curriculum, you start taking classes in your Interaction Design major on day one. You'll be examining the user experience from the get-go, learning the technology, visuals, and behaviors involved in the ways humans interact with devices and other interactive products. 

After your first year, you'll have the option to declare a concentration—in either Implementation or Visual Design—or create your own path by choosing the program electives that suit your interests and career goals.
