B.S. Interactive Design

The Bachelor of Science in Interactive Design provides students with an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to developing the technical, theoretical, and problem solving skills needed to serve as interaction designers and user interface designers.

We believe that design is a process and not a product. To us, design isn't something you apply to the look of a product or service. Rather, design happens at every stage of the process, from opening planning meetings to screen-based deliverables. 

In the degree, we focus on:

  • Introducing the tools and teaching techniques to create an effective portfolio of interactive, screen-based designs.
  • Learning about design using problem solving, goal-directed, and human-centered design approaches.

  • A cultural approach to design that situates understanding meaning within different contexts.

  • Honing soft skills -- being a good teammate, presentation skills, and the ability to explain design work to different audiences.

  • Learning computational thinking and some front-end coding.

Our ultimate goal is to create designers who are good problem solvers, communicators, and listeners. The emphasis here is on creating well-rounded designers who are suited to meet the growing marketplace need for interactive design.
