Why Study UX?

User experience (UX) professionals help organizations design products and services that people love. Products with excellent UX meet people’s needs and are easy to use. A user experience education at UAH prepares you to help organizations create amazing products and improve their processes and services.

The UX classes at UAH teach you to research what people want, design product prototypes and website wireframes, and test products on real users. These hands-on classes provide challenging, realistic projects using the software and methods expected in industry. Our Graduate Certificate in User Experience prepares you to transition into this career field. Our UX minor introduces you to a variety of interdisciplinary skills, including graphic design, programming, technical writing, statistical analysis, human factors, user research, rapid prototyping, and user testing, to make you a well-rounded professional.

UX is a growing field in Huntsville and throughout the United States, with a projected growth rate of 22% between now and 2028.

Graduates from our program have started UX careers at Northrup Grumman, Spur, Trideum, and other local companies. A career in user experience is an exciting way to apply your design, research, and communication talents.
