Interaction Design

The Interaction Design emphasis available to CIS majors highlights the issues involved in designing computing systems in a human-centric manner and focuses on the theories and techniques involved in developing effective interfaces for information systems. Courses in Human-Computer Interaction, Game Design and Development, Web Design and Development and more prepare students to take on research, internships, conference presentations, and networking beyond the classroom to jumpstart their careers after W&J.

Additional information about the program and about the broad array of opportunities for internships, research, and careers is available in the Visual Guide for Interaction Design Emphasis (PDF) and on the CIS major page. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
