The accelerating integration of technology into every aspect of society will demand professionals trained with information technology skills that are augmented by an understanding of the human user. These skills will be necessary for any individual to remain competitive in the future information technology work force. Only those individuals with a unique interdisciplinary perspective will be able to successfully understand, utilize, and apply new technological solutions to solve human-centered problems.
The Certificate Program in Human Computer Interaction is an interdisciplinary educational experience that will provide students with advanced training in information technology tailored to support professional development in a online-education medium.
Admission and application procedures for the Human Computer Interaction Graduate Certificate Program can be found on the HCI program website and on the Graduate College website. Students may take up to 9 credits as a non-degree seeking student, so it is possible to begin your studies before formal admittance into the program.
The HCI graduate certificate consists of a sequence of four 3-credit graduate courses, which includes three core courses and one elective, for a total of 12 credits. A list of core and elective courses can be found on the HCI program website.
