Human Computer Interaction

State University of New York (Oswego)

The masters programs integrate service and design thinking into a rigorous, cross-disciplinary human-computer interaction curriculum that prepares our students to design and guide the future of human and technology interactions.

Our program provides students with the practical skills and theoretical understandings they need to develop successful careers related to human computer interaction, user experience design and user-centered research.


Truly Interdisciplinary

No matter what your previous field of study ...

Students on the HCI masters programs come from a wide variety of academic backgrounds, some science based, some not.

Past students have previously studied computer science, psychology, graphic design, business, education, communication, software engineering, English literature, cognitive science, creative writing, biology, accounting, electical engineering, history and more ...

We believe the inter-disciplinary environment this creates is one of the strengths of this graduate program.


Human Computer Interaction

We study humans, and what they do with technology, so that we can improve the experience

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.
