    What is Interactive Design?

    The Bachelor of Science with a major in Interactive Design provides students with an interdisciplinary, hands-on approach to developing the technical, theoretical, and creative skills needed to serve in the field of interactive design as interaction designers, user interface designers (UI), and information visualization designers (UX).

    This approach to design merges technical knowledge and aesthetic creativity with an ultimate focus on the human needs of end users. Students will combine practical prototyping skills with theoretical and technical approaches to front-end digital design and culture. The emphasis here is on creating well-rounded designers who are suited to meet the growing marketplace need for interactive design.
