It’s a wonderful thing when one of the fastest-growing tech-related career fields is accessible to you – even if you don’t hold a tech-related degree. We offer a master degree in Human-Centered Interaction Design at the Harrisburg University of Science and Technology. 


In fact, having a liberal arts, humanities, or social and behavioral science background actually makes you a better fit for the Human-Centered Interaction Design (HCID) field than the techies!

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology’s Human-Centered Interaction Design master’s degree program is about designing processes, apps, and environments to make more fulfilling and useful experiences for people. It requires creativity, empathy for people, and strong problem-solving skills.

The career possibilities are endless and industry is clamoring for those qualified to bridge the gap between environments, technologies and the public. When you graduate with your HCID master’s degree, you’ll be ready to begin a career in user research and interface design, interaction design, business analysis, or information architecture. You’ll be able to improve life for millions of people by making technology options and human interactions that provide a gateway to a fuller, more satisfying life rather than a frustrating barrier.
