Experience Design Minor
Mark Dixon, Department of Art
Experience design examines how humans interact with products, services and other people. Within such interactions, experience design encompasses the emotions, behaviors and attitudes conjure. Experience design seeks to enhance interactive experiences through better design and implementation based on research, observation, and understanding. While the field tends to have an emphasis on human computer interface, its essence is improving all aspects of the end-user’s interaction. User experience design builds on elements of psychology, art, business and computer technology and has applications in both the profit and nonprofit sectors.
