We believe the inter-disciplinary environment this creates is one of the strengths of this graduate program.
The discipline is concerned with the design, evaluation and implementation of interactive computing systems for human use and the study of the major phenomena surrounding them. As a field of research, human-computer interaction is situated at the intersection of computer science, behavioral sciences, design, media studies, and several other fields of study.
Students of human-computer interaction are interested in developing new design methodologies, experimenting with new devices, prototyping new software and hardware systems, exploring new interaction paradigms, and developing models and theories of interaction.
