The Human Computer Interaction and User Experience (Online) courses from Drexel University from Drexel University will prepare you for a career in either UX or interaction design. Classes cover foundational knowledge that will be applicable to professionals in either role.


American adults are spending more time on their electronic devices than ever. With that increase in screen time comes a greater need for businesses to understand exactly how we interact with our technology. 

The Human Computer Interaction and User Experience (Online) program is offered by Drexel University.

Drexel University’s online Certificate in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience (UX) is an introductory look at the world of UX and HCI. 

Designed for those who already hold a bachelor’s degree in an adjacent field (such as computer science, engineering, or the humanities), this online user experience certificate prepares you with foundational industry knowledge that you can put to use immediately.

Train for a position in UX and HCI while still working full time, and learn from and network with faculty who have worked in the field and maintain their connections with local industry.
