Summary

In this exciting interdisciplinary field, human senses and emotions (happily) collide with the digital interface. Right at the intersection of design, media and technology, it’s one of the fastest growing – and most career-rich – sectors of the global economy. The UX and web design degree gives you the cutting-edge research, design and development knowledge you need to build your career in this leading industry and to stand out from the crowd. And when you graduate, you’ll be able to design and craft compelling interactive experiences for web, mobile, social and online, across sectors as diverse as advertising, education and entertainment.

Our Bachelor of Digital Media course specializing in UX and web design is broad ranging, current and highly regarded in the industry. Bringing together the needs of humans and the capabilities of technology, it covers the theory and practice of user-experience design, information architecture, graphic and interface design, human–computer interaction, nonlinear storytelling, scripting and development, user behavior and psychology, research, innovation and strategic thinking. If this sounds overwhelming, don’t worry – you won’t be on your own! You’ll collaborate with other students in the Problem-based Learning Studio. That’s where you’ll all apply your own expertise and imagination to the projects you work on throughout the course. In your final year you can apply for an internship in a professional interaction design studio. There you will have the opportunity to work in teams with professionals on a live project work for a real client. You will also have the chance to complement your core studies by completing elective subjects in Motion Design, 3D Design and Animation or Communication Design. You can pick and mix electives to design your degree to achieve your goals. You will graduate with state-of-the-art technical skills as well as a thorough understanding of user-centered interactive design. You’ll bring the most effective and appropriate solutions to every brief and be in demand by studios around the country and around the world.
