Human-Computer Interaction Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Schools & Departments

Computers are now embedded in devices ranging in size from space stations to fingernails, yet human brains must still understand their user interfaces. The Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) Certificate supplies the skills and knowledge students need to work in this new environment, which includes the Web, multimedia, wizards, agents, and still-developing technologies. The HCI certificate program consists of four three-credit courses related to the issues found in human-computer interactions: COMM 6740 Foundations of HCI Usability, COMM 6810 Studio Design in HCI, and two additional HCI courses from an approved list. This certificate is available to both on-campus and distance students as either a stand-alone certificate or as an option in the M.S. programs in Technical Communication and Communication and Rhetoric.
