Bachelor of UX and Web Design

Billy Blue College of Design

This course was previously titled ‘Bachelor of Digital Media (Interaction Design)’ with CRICOS code 090299G. The name has recently changed as part of Billy Blue at Torrens University Australia's continuous improvement process to more accurately describe the course content and industry outcomes that result from it.

How do you feel about human-computer interaction? How about graphic and interface design or information architecture or non-linear storytelling? Do you feel anything about the way humans interact with machines? Okay, you passed the Voight-Kampff test. This is the path for you if you’re passionate about things like the role of human psychology in designing user interfaces. As opposed to machine psychology, which… isn’t a thing. Interaction Design is extremely relevant to anything happening across web, mobile, social and online. You’ll learn strategic thinking, user experience design and development – and have the opportunity to apply for an internship in a professional studio, working on live projects.
