UC Irvine Launches Executive Master’s Program in Human-Computer Interaction & Design

 

Irvine, Calif. (USA). – “UC Irvine’s Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) has announced the launch of a Master of Human-Computer Interaction and Design (MHCID). Housed in the Department of Informatics, the new MHCID offers the world’s only low-residency one-year master’s program that combines the benefits of a high-touch on-campus experience with the flexibility of online learning. The new accelerated program has just started accepting applications for its first cohort of graduate students who will begin this fall.
“We listened to our Advisory Board, got feedback from the world’s largest UX employers, and built on our world-class research to custom design a program for today’s competitive employment landscape,” said Robert A. and Barbara L. Kleist Professor in Informatics Gillian Hayes, who is also the faculty director for the MHCID program.
Focusing on professional education, the MHCID is an interdisciplinary degree that builds on the strengths from multiple schools across the UC Irvine campus, including the arts, business, education and humanities. The program brings together design, technology and the study of human behavior to prepare its graduates to be leaders in user experience research and design, interaction design, information architecture, product design and human-computer interaction. ”
