ABOUT UNT’S MA IXD Program

For those looking to develop their career and design leadership capacity, The University of North Texas’ MA in Design with a concentration in Interaction Design (IxD) can be the launch pad. The degree is designed to help individuals and organizations gain the skills, methods, and experiences needed to define meaningful, effective and successful human-centered products, services, and systems.

My Experience

I am on the fence about completing the degree and returning to the program. I completed 2 semesters and enjoyed my courses, professors, and classmates but do not feel UX is right for me.

However, with that said, It was a great experience. learned design thinking techniques and agile methodologies that can be applied to digital marketing. UX design is all about studying how people interact with technology and designing with the user in mind.

Focusing on user needs is more important now than ever before and understanding and applying UX methods in the graphic communication and technology world is essential.

The courses are centered primarily around UX and app design but the design principles apply to all forums of graphic communication. Although, UX design is still very intriguing to me and something I am quite interested in it’s not my niche.
