Graduate Certificate in User Experience and Usability

The User Experience and Usability (UXU) Certificate, offered by the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies, prepares students to design and evaluate technology tools and information systems. The multi-faceted human-centered lens for design and evaluation is a systematic process supported by research and best practices.

Our UXU certificate is uniquely positioned in the area of usability because our Information Experience Laboratory (IE Lab) performs extensive usability and user experience research with internal and external clients. You will prepare for jobs in an expanding field where UXU competencies are used in education, industry, healthcare, museums and other learning and performance settings.


The certificate curriculum consists of 12 graduate credit hours that may be transferred into SISLT’s M.S. or Ed.Sp. programs. The 12 graduate credit hours apply toward any of the emphasis areas: Online Education, Technology in Schools.
