User-Centered Agile Development
The User-Centered Agile Development mastery course will prepare you to pursue a career in software development with a UX focus. You’ll work with a partner or two on a semester-long project integrating UX research and design methods with agile software development, with the goal of producing a Minimally Viable Prototype at the end.
UMSI Mastery courses are special types of courses that allow you to demonstrate synthesis of the major theories, methods, and approaches to inquiry and/or schools of practice necessary for entry into a particular career in the information professions.
