How are these courses related to the Masters Degree Rutgers offers in UXD?

The UXD courses are the same ones we require of our UXD Masters students. They are in each course at a ratio of about 1 Masters student to 4 professional education students. It is very likely that one of them will be on your project team. They enjoy the interaction with individuals already working in the area of UXD and almost all of them are part time students who also work. For those interested in the master’s program.

I need to be in a four hour conference call on (Mon, Tue, Wed, etc.) Is this okay?

The UXD courses are too intense for conducting personal work within the course time. In addition, you will be working in teams and your team mates will need your input and effort. We recommend scheduling the conference call at another time or taking the course at another time.

What do the follow-on UXD courses teach that I didn't learn in the base course?

In the initial course in UXD, we cover the entire process of good design beginning with user research and ending with prototype evaluation, but we do not teach any of the sub disciplines in detail. User Evaluation, for example, discusses web analytics, statistics, international user testing and eye tracking, none of which are covered in the first course.

I already build web pages. Do I really need this course?

This course will show you how UX fits into what you do. It is not focused on web page design but on User Experience design for all types of interfaces whether they appear on a lawn mower, a mobile phone, a medical device or a web page. When you finish the course, you will suddenly understand the many different facets of UX and how it fits within the entire strategy of your organization.

I already have a degree in Graphic Design. Do I really need this course?

Only a small part of this course is related to visual design. The course is intended to give an overview of the field and how each skill set interacts to produce high quality UX design. If you are considering taking advanced courses from Rutgers, you will not need the course in visual design.
