UX Research and Design
The UX Research and Design mastery course prepares you to demonstrate mastery of applying design theories, concepts, and principles to defining valid problems; uncovering user needs; articulating service requirements; documenting UX research results; proposing, refining, and prototyping design solutions; and communicating with stakeholders effectively.
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.
You’ll have opportunities to integrate methods and theories about user experience design in this course by engaging in the whole process, from identifying design issues to developing design solutions. You’ll work on a single project end-to-end during the semester, either individually or with a partner. Most projects are chosen and designed by students from scratch, though you can propose projects for real-world clients, as long as they meet the course requirements.
Note: Current students should refer to their respective Academic Advising Canvas sites to ensure they are accessing the most up to date curricular information for their specific cohort.
