Courses

Experiential Design Courses

The Experiential Design major builds off the first two years of the core Design Communication courses. Starting at the junior level, students begin exploring interaction and user experience design in both digital and non-digital environments. At the senior level, students refine their knowledge of various experience and user interaction design techniques.

Throughout the program, students are also introduced to web design, motion graphics, kinetic typography, storyboarding and basic visual scripting (such as JavaScript). Emphasis is also placed on typography and design history to give a historical context of design and its relationship to culture.

All BFA students within the Department of Art take the same core foundation studio courses during the first year. Design portfolio reviews are conducted at during the sophomore, junior and senior years to further enhance learning through professional feedback.
