UX Class Workshop

The UX minor aims to bring together several different disciplines to create a robust, rigorous, and multifaceted program. These various disciplines and courses will come together in service of providing students a broad, applicable UX education. Students in the UX minor will meet the following learning objectives:

  • Identify core theoretical principles and research methods of user experience.
  • Apply UX research methods to analyze the behavior, needs, goals, frustrations, and emotions of real-world users.
  • Design and prototype solutions for the problems identified by the user experience research.
    Evaluate the effectiveness of products, technologies, and services in meeting user needs and providing a satisfying experience.
  • Develop recommendations for improving the UX of new products, prototypes, and existing products, technologies, and services.

Current BA Psychology

Usability Studies has helped me connect theory to practice. In the classroom, hands-on projects have given me the confidence to perform well at my co-op. For example, leading team projects is something that I’ve become more comfortable with by taking UX courses at UAH.
