Graduate Certificate in UX and Web Design

Billy Blue College of Design

UX has become so important to so many industries in the past few years, it’s amazing that it wasn’t always at the top of every employer’s list of requirements in an applicant. Of course, it’s more than just a buzzword. Teamed up with web design, it’s the ultimate frontier in crafting the future we all want to live in – where the techno-wonders we create make sense to us as quickly and painlessly as possible. If you’re feeling dubious, download a TRS-80 emulator and try to puzzle out any of the games without reading a manual. Nightmare.
